Beneath the Manhattan Municipal Building’s soaring vaulted ceiling is this original sign for the stairs to the BMT (aka, the J and Z) Chambers Street station.
A wonderful vintage lantern-like sign still lights the way at the entrance to the Fulton Street IRT station downtown.
Not all old-timey subway signs are charming. This 1970s-style sign announces the entrance to the Hunter College-68th Street IRT station.
Could this is where the Subway sandwich got the inspiration for their logo? The arrow looks awfully similar.
