It never became the Hoyt-Schermerhorn-Jackson station like some wanted it to be. Talk about your missed opportunities.

Worst: A/G Hoyt/Schermerhorn

This station is dark and cavernous and has several unused platforms which add to its general sense of disrepair and abandonment. It also features a really annoying transfer from the A to the G because, instead of a quick hop across the platform, in order to transfer to the train that's still going in the same direction that you were already traveling in, you need to go up and down stairs. Annoying. The only thing going for it, is that this is where Michael Jackson's "Bad" video was shot. But, well, that was a super long time ago. And that transfer is still really annoying.
