10. Willets Pt. (7)

Let’s Go Mets!

9. Union Station (L,N,Q,R,W,4,5,6)

The quintessential subway station: always full of people, winding labyrinths of connecting passages, and a rotating set of performing musicians to rival Carnegie Hall.

8. Aqueduct Racetrack (A)

Going my way? One–way train stops invite many questions. Check it out next time you come home from JFK Airport.

7. Marcy Ave. (J,M)

Great platform to stand outside on a gorgeous spring night and discuss the draft you just 2-0 split at Twenty Sided Store on your way to eat some late-night noodles.

6. Chambers Street (J)

Give this place some respect, MTA! What supervillain pays to keep the rotting unused platform in the middle of this station unkempt? This dungeon is one of the more Batman-esque locales in the city.

5. Broadway Junction (A,C,J,L)

Best place in town to get lifted—by the giant escalator between the underground and elevated platforms.

4. Lexington Ave. 53rd St. (EM) and 51st St. (6)

For the brief months I lived in Manhattan many years ago, I transferred trains here every morning and afternoon, rocking out to the pan-flutist and his amplified karaoke. It’s a long walk from the Lexington Avenue line around the underground shopping center and down the steep escalator into the chilly cross-town pit.

3. Hoyt-Schermerhorn (A,C,G)

They Hoyt on your Schermerhorn.

2. Cortlandt Street (R,W)

Nothing tops the squeals you get coming into this station on the downtown track. It’s my theme song, one I’ll never forget.

1. Metropolitan Ave. (G) and Lorimer (L)

This popular Williamsburg transfer has to be at the top of the list for Hipsters of the Coast. Popular transfer point for Brooklyn Team Draft League matches. A true wild card determining how late your teammates would be.
