The 96th Street Subway Station

I don't get off at the 96th Street stop of the Broadway line much. Which is a shame. Because I find the stark, modern, new ceramics of the station quite pleasing to the eye. Really one of the best station design re-dos the MTA had ever done. So stylish, you'd think it was done in the '30s.

This station has a very interesting history - see this page here:

Oddly, the last paragraph still talks about the "planned" renovation even though it has been complete for a year or so and there are lots of pictures of it right below. (Also, the station was made more efficient, thankfully, since it used to take several minutes just to get onto the express track.)
