"Hey," said my sister, "did you see the video of that guy about finding Bessarion station?"
"Bessarion station?" I asked, the name not ringing a bell. "Is that a subway stop in New York?"
"No, it's in Toronto, on the purple line!"
Ah, the purple line. The most pointless, least useful line hardly anyone takes. And that, my friends, proving the point of this short film, that's where Bessarion station lies.
In this short documentary, TTC Enthusiast and Urban Explorer Jeremy Woodcock travels to Bessarion Station, the least used Subway Station on the Toronto Transit Map, to find out if it really does exist and why it would be built in the first place.
