Well, blogspot errs on my comment re. NYC subways that open into buildings, so i’ll just say it here.

You used to be able to get out of the 4,5,6 at Grand Central, walk through some winding hallways and get out in the lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel (45th and Madison).

You could get out of the uptown 6 at 59th St. and step out into Bloomingdales. Maybe you can still do this — i’m not sure.
