Secretly and usually at night. The network of moving slaves to freedom was known as "railroad". Code names were used such as "conductors, stations, depots, etc. Underground me…aning secret. Thus, underground railroad.There were safe houses where runaway slaves would stay for a few days at a time. Sometimes there were hiding places under the floor. Sometimes there was a basement below the basement.
The Underground Railroad operated in the United States of America.
Penn Station is at 33rd to 34th Street, between 8th Avenue (west entrance) and 7th Avenue (east entrance). Walk up 8th or 7th Avenue to 42nd Street. Turn right onto 42nd and w…alk east to Grand Central, at 42nd Street between Park and Lexington Avenues. That's 4 - 5 avenue blocks from 7th Avenue (not counting Broadway, which runs diagonally and cuts between avenues): 7th Avenue ---> 6th Avenue ---> 5th Avenue ---> Madison Avenue ---> Park Avenue ---> Lexington Avenue. Or you can just take the subway. Take the Uptown 1-2-3 (the red line), 1 stop, from 34th Street-Penn Station to 42nd Street-Times Square. Transfer at 42nd Street-Times Square to the S shuttle train (color grey), east across 42nd Street, from Times Square to Grand Central. From Grand Central to Penn Station, it's the reverse: the S shuttle train west across 42nd, from 42nd Street-Grand Central to 42nd Street-Times Square, and then the Downtown 1-2-3, 1 stop, from 42nd-Times Square to 34th-Penn Station.
The stations on the underground railroad are pennsylvania, canada, maryland, new york, and massachusetts.
New York's Grand Central Terminal has a total area of 70 acres. It includes two levels for passengers with gates to dozens of tracks, a balcony level, and a two-story underg…round train yard.
The Underground railroad is not an actual railroad. It was a secret network of cooperation between slaves and those who helped them escape to freedom in attempts to give them… that freedom. So, the U.R.R. may be in your heart or mind, but not in a physical place.
Not possible these days. Amtrak no longer has service to Grand Central Terminal. BTW - Grand Central Station is the subway station. The railroad station is Grand Central Ter…minal.
Take the S shuttle train (color code grey) west across 42nd Street, from Grand Central Station (East 42nd) to Times Square (West 42nd). At the 42nd Street-Times Square Station…, transfer to the Downtown 2 or 3 (of the 1-2-3, the red line) to the Wall Street Station. The Wall Street Station on the 2 and 3 is actually on William Street, half a block from the corner of Wall and William Streets. Note that the 3 train will not stop at Wall Street from 11:30 PM to to 6 AM.
The underground railroad (not a railroad and mostly not underground) was the network that helped slaves escape to the North prior to the Civil War. The term "stations" referre…d to the individual safe locations (houses, barns, farms) that would feed, clothe, and hide the slaves as they moved step-by-step toward the free states and Canada. The "conductors" were the guides who accompanied groups of slaves, to lead them from one station to the next. In the secret organization, few guides knew more than one or two of the locations, so they could not compromise the entire organization if caught, arrested, or bribed.
It's impossible to say, without knowing exactly where in Brooklyn you're coming from. Brooklyn is almost 100 square miles in area and almost all of New York City's subway line…s run through it. The directions will be completely different, depending on where in Brooklyn you're coming from. The only subway lines that stop at 42nd Street-Grand Central Station are the 4-5-6 (the dark green line) and the 7 train (the purple line). Of these, the 4 and 5 are the only lines that run into Brooklyn. Unless you are starting out near one of the stops on the 4 and 5, you will have to transfer.
The Underground Railroad operated like a real railroad because it did have a certain system or route that was always followed. The Underground Railroad also had passengers and… conductors.
