NY Train Project – New York’s subway system can be one of the most exciting or overwhelming experiences that a first time visitor or seasoned rider can have. NY Train Project is an online gallery of subways stations in NYC, starting with Manhattan. The developer of this site hopes this gallery can serve as not only a tribute to the history of the subway stations but also as a quick guide to getting around New York via the MTA.

    Thanks for visiting the site, the other boroughs will definitely be up at some point along with new features further down the road that should be fun.

    As a New Yorker, I know what I'm talking about. I wish you did. So long. Beam me up.

    Technically you're nitpickingly right, but everyone refers to it as the train, not the subway, and it's all part of the same system. So, the MTA train system runs in all five boroughs.

      It's only "nit picking" if you don't know the difference. If you were a New Yorker, then we wouldn't be having this conversation.

      The LIRR, Hudson, Harlem, New Haven and Danbury are also "trains" owned and operated by the MTA but no one would ever mistake them for, or call them "subways."

    The NY Train Project would be more aptly named the Manhattan Train Project. This was obviously created by someone who doesn't know that Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island and Queens are also part of the city. And, yes, the trains do go to those places as well.

      Sorry, Shawn. There are no subways in Staten Island, only the Staten Island Railway commuter railroad which is owned by the MTA and operated by NY Transit Authority but is not part of the subway system

      "The NY Train Project would be more aptly named the Manhattan Train Project"
      It is a work in progress. One day it will cover boroughs other than Manhattan.

      Lame factoids about many of the stations are another shortcoming of the project. Hopefully better factoids can be supplied in the future. For example: Washington Heights station on the A train is so far below street level that it can only be reached by an elevator. There are no public stairs.

    I can't wait for the Train Project to show stops outside of Manhattan
