The platform “has become a holy grail for many urban explorers,” but Gothamist got a rare opportunity to check it out this past weekend. Above, the car that FDR rode in.

This is the elevator shaft that was custom-built to carry FDR’s prized Pierce Arrow limousine directly to the parking garage and ultimately, the presidential suite.
This stairway leads down to a condemned subbasement, where the 4/5/6 line supposedly used to run.
Where the FDR car would have pulled up.
Another part of the line.
