Nine year old picture, would like to recreate. Can’t remember much about the trip other than we entered and left the city at Grand Central, and some of our wandering was around Times Square.

I’m guessing it’s at Times Square/42nd Street where the 1 and 7 cross?

But Times Square has platforms on the express tracks. This appears to be a local only station on the 7th Ave IRT.

That style of platform edge is relatively uncommon. On that line, it's only found at 50 St, 18 St, and Canal St.

Was definitely 50th street then. Dang, we even passed through there, but I didn't cross to the other side of the platforms to look.

Many thanks.
