Old Slip-Hanover Square is a station on the IND Second Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Hanover Square and Pearl Street, it is served by the T at all times and the Y on weekdays. This station opened on July 1, 1968 as part of the Chrystie Street line and connection project. It was also known as Pine/Wall Streets, and was renamed sometime after opening.

HistoryEdit

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 25, 1957, with Mayor Robert F. Wagner, Jr. and TA officials in attendance for the new Chrystie Street Line and connection project. It was expected that the project would be finished in around 1965.

The project was projected to cost $175 million, and was projected to provide capacity for over 75,000 more riders an hour between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Lighting, power and signal equipment for the Chrystie Street line had been installed by January 1965. In 1965, the whole project was projected to be completed in 1967. However, the line and the Pine/Wall Streets station opened on July 1, 1968.
