I came upon an old list I’d drawn up years ago, added to over time, that includes various places in the world which amaze me. Of course, places like Alton Towers and Subway amaze me, but I’m talking about REALLY amazing places. Places that even time itself, along with everyone else in the world, totally forgot about.
Take City Hall Station in NYC for example. A grand Victorian style subway (minus the footlong meatball specials) complete with brass chandeliers. It’s like something from a romantic movie. Sadly, because it was built around such a tight corner, and trains got longer as they became a more popular mode of transport, City Hall Loop was closed in 1945.
Really does seem a shame to hide away such beauty. But of course, this isn’t the only amazing place that amazes me.
