SEPTA Underground Concourse Map

032408concourse.jpg

Speaking of things that are old, I just today came across this map of the Center City underground concourses, which is where Kevin Bacon was born or something. Pretty neat, especially since it’s based off an old map in one of the concourses that was covered up for a while. There are bigger versions over here.

    I want one that’s color-coded according to the different smells you can experience in each of these underground places on the map.

    I didn’t know about that part that extends up to Race Street. I wonder if that still exists? Great. Now I have to check it out. Stupid OCD, OCD, OCD.

    I thought this was color-coded to match up with the smells of the city and underground concourse.

    Toronto has a better system of underground passageways called PATH. It is climate controlled and of course being Canadian it is clean.

    This map is not completely accurate.

    There is a tunnel missing between the northeast corner of City Hall to just west of 13th/Juniper Station and it runs underneath Penn Square’s Northeast corner to empty out at the MSB plaza.

    Most people don’t know about this tunnel, including the homeless. Amazingly, it’s one of the few places in the concourse system that isn’t full of graffiti or urine because most people aren’t aware of the passage.

    To find it, walk away from the 13th Street Station platforms on the Westbound/69th-Street side (North). Look to your right as you keep walking towards City Hall. During hours when the tunnel is open, the gates will be swung open.

    This tunnel used to connect you to the old City Hall Annex building and was a long-way around to the MSB building. All the basement building entrances have been bricked up since none of those properties belong to the City anymore.

    When I was in Toronto, a subway worker actually came out of her booth to help us. At first, i thought she was going to fight us since I didn’t know people could do that.

    WTF is MSB?

    Municipal Services Building. It’s that squat Brutalist 1960s highrise just north of City Hall with the big plaza full of bingo chips, Monopoly and chess pieces.

    It’s filled with City patronage white-collar workers.

    You mean the one with the statue of Mr Patronage himself, Frank Rizzo Sr, out front?

    Ahh, fantastic! I can’t rely on SEPTA to post this map anywhere online (and barely even in their concourses), so it’s good to have this. It’s kind of shoddy, but I blame the original map the maker based this off of.

    I know there are a lot of things in that map that are no longer accessible to the public…
