Re: Times Square Shuttle Station Track 4 Platform

That "Knickerbocker" door is not mysterious at all. It led directly to the original Knickerbocker Hotel on the south-east corner of Broadway & 42 St. Construction began in 1903 and the hotel opened in 1906. The building is still there. After years of serving as an office building and garment company showrooms it's back as a hotel.

The Wikipedia article about the hotel is here. It has photos of the building and that door.
