Exploring LA’s dark, abandoned subway system located deep underneath the city of Los Angeles

Alissa writes a wonderful blog and frequently shares stories and photos (on Flickr) about her adventures while “walking through LA”. She recently took a field trip through the abandoned subway systems of Los Angeles. For those who didn’t know, LA does indeed have a subway system although the geographical dispersion of LA residents doesn’t make it a very popular choice for moving about the city. Still, in the 1940’s, over 65,000 riders used the LA subway system, a system that has since been abandoned after the new lines were built.
Entrances to the underground system have been sealed but readers have noted there are a few ways you can still get in. Unsealed entrances are typically located behind locked gates or inside the old subway system’s boarded-up terminals.
Here’s the old subway system as it looked in its heyday.
And here’s how it looks today.
