THE EAGLES HAVE returned. And unlike at Brooklyn Bridge and at 14 Street, they are not sealed behind walls installed during some "renovation." Much of the original decor of this station has been preserved; there is even an Interborough Rapid Transit sign on one of the columns between the tracks warning passengers not to cross the tracks. The center express tracks are lower than the local tracks at 33 Street because of the tunnel under Park Avenue that is now used for automobiles, and which was used for streetcars back in 1904. The Murray Hill subway tunnel begins right at the uptown end of the station.
