None of them are that scary if you ask me.The subways were scary 35 years ago but not any more really.

^^^^^^^
No,I take that back.The Bedford Ave stop on the L train during the AM rush is the scariest. Someone is going to get nudged off the platform into the path of an oncoming train real soon.Surprised it hasn't happened yet.

15 years ago i would have said broadway-east new york on the A/C/J/Z/L lines, but nowadays i cant think of one. like bluedog said, the subways are much safer now.

I don't take the subway but the scariest subway station I've been in is the one at Penn Station (Southbound A/C/E train), that platform is so narrow, whenever we choose to take the train (LIRR + Subway) to the Port Authority Bus Terminal I'm always up against the wall in there.

It's good to hear such good feedback about how safe they are now.

And before anyone says it..........I know, you still have to be careful.

actually i take it back. sutter avenue and livonia avenue on the L train are two train stations i would avoid using late at night. its in brownsville, all those projects are about a block away, and the immediate area around the train stations is very desolate at night, and downright scary looking.

view it on google maps street views, type in sutter avenue and van sinderen avenue, brooklyn & livonia avenue and van sinderen avenue, brooklyn.

I know exactly where you're talking about. A few years ago I had to use the Sutter Avenue station coming home from a friends house at around 1-2am. It spooked the hell out of me. I even seen a group of teens walking around by the industrial buildings across from the projects. I pretended to talk on my cell phone so they wouldn't bother me.

Other than that station. I'd vote for the Baychester Avenue station on the 5 in the Bronx. It is very rundown and the entrance/exit sits right under the el and is pretty creepy looking at night.

I don't think I've been to the most dangerous. But I have to say that some of the passageways and tunnels are a bit gross/disgusting, even in nice parts of Manhattan. There is a really bad part of the 53rd/Lex station. I think it might connect the 6 and the E trains, but I can't remember exactly. It stinks.

Also I am not a fan of the block-long passageway between the 1 train at 14th St./7th Ave and the L train at 14th St./ 6th Ave, but I don't think it is dangerous necessarily.
