Quick: What’s New York City’s top-reviewed subway station?
Believe it or not, thousands of riders have rated hundreds of stations on forums like Yelpand Google, considering factors like cleanliness and token booth clerk personality. While the reviews aren’t verified, they can indicate a station’s relative popularity.
Crunching the numbers from Yelp and Google, and disregarding the new Second Avenue line, I was surprised to find a standout: Manhattan’s 59th St.-Columbus Circle station at the southwest corner of Central Park. While most stops average two or three stars out of five, Columbus Circle averages four or five.
