One of the first four stops on the first subway in America, Park Street Station was part of the line that originally ran only as far as the present-day Boylston stop. It was opened for service in 1897, against the warnings of those convinced it would make buildings along Tremont Street collapse. The copper-roof kiosks are National Historic Landmarks—outside them cluster flower vendors, street musicians, and partisans of causes and beliefs ranging from Irish nationalism to Krishna Consciousness. The station is the center of Boston's subway system; "inbound" trains are always traveling toward Park Street.
