Stations on demolished lines[edit]

I have intended to include demolished stations on demolished lines in the list. Would this be a good idea and is it practical? Tinlinkin (talk) 06:15, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

I was wondering about this as well. I think that it would make sense. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 11:26, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Pneumatic Stations[edit]

Shouldn't the stations from Beach Pneumatic Transit be included here as well? I realize it was a completely different subway technology, but it was a subway in Manhattan and did have stations. One of which is apparently still in some semblance of form as a storage area in a store. It would be interesting to find more information. Lexlex (talk) 10:25, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

"deemed" by what/who?[edit]

There are several entries that say things like "Closed after platform lengthening of the 96th Street platforms deemed the station to be within proximity." The platform lengthening clearly didn't make that judgment. Does this mean something like "Closed after platform lengthening...when the MTA/company decided the station was within proximity"? Or "after platform lengthening, when architects/engineers deemed the station to be within proximity"?

And what does "within proximity" mean? Is this just a long way of saying "close enough to make now-closed station redundant"? Does anyone know what distances were considered close enough? Vicki Rosenzweig (talk) 16:54, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Hurricane Sandy[edit]

Should the currently closed stations on the A in the Rockaways be included on this list? Ken S. (talk) 00:42, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

I think they should not. This list ignores such temporarily closed stations as Smith–Ninth Streets (IND Culver Line) and Knickerbocker Avenue (BMT Myrtle Avenue Line). Vcohen (talk) 09:11, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
However, it includes Cortlandt Street (IRT Broadway - Seventh Avenue Line) (closed due to 9/11) which would fall under the same category as these stations and South Ferry (IRT Broadway - Seventh Avenue Line) which is also closed due to Sandy-related damage. The section that these stations would fit in also includes the various post-9/11 openings and closings of Cortlandt Street (BMT Broadway Line). Ken S. (talk) 19:15, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
The list does not include South Ferry (IRT Broadway - Seventh Avenue Line). The South Ferry station in the list is South Ferry loops (New York City Subway).
Cortlandt Street (IRT Broadway - Seventh Avenue Line) is a very special case, it's a station that doesn't exist and is under construction from scratch. Vcohen (talk) 19:34, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Thirteenth Ave?[edit]

There is station "`13 Av" just south of Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn on this map that doesn't exist any more -- it seems to be missing from this page.

That station was on the former Culver Shuttle and was demolished in the 1980s along with the rest of the Culver Line between 9th Avenue and Ditmas Avenue. Ken S. (talk) 02:15, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
