72 St headhouses

As constructed in 1904, the only entrances and exits were through the original headhouse on the south side of 72 St (with what have to be the narrowest staircases between the street and platforms in the entire system). Then in 2002 the much larger new headhouse was opened north of 72 St, with wider stairs and elevators.
