I vote Grand Street as the ugliest in the system. I hope they'll use subway tiles whenever the time comes for it to be renovated.

It's got more colour than 57th St-6 Avenue, a similar tile installation. That one has nothing whatsoever; at least here we have a blue stripe. This type of tile was de rigeur in the '60s.

Chambers on the J is living, breathing history of a different era of transit, when we still dared to think big. The open but abandoned side platform is a time capsule from the 1930s. Chambers is a treasure - walk down it's gloomy platforms and think of the millions upon millions who have been there before you, when Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig were still playing and "talkies" were the next big thing.
