Court Square

Court Square

What we know simply as Court Square today, this station was once named 45th Road-Court House. It’s name was derived from the Long Island City Courthouse, which is now a landmarked Supreme Court building established during the late 1800s (Wikipedia). Court Square’s subway complex allows connections to the E, G, and M trains, and is conveniently located near MOMA PS1 and the Citigroup Building. However, it’s most renowned landmarks are the Court Square Diner, originally founded in 1946, and the former 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center. (QNS Made). Today, Court Square is no stranger to urban renewal: a new skyline is currently underway.
