That's not part of the Subway. That's Track 61 of Grand Central Terminal - part of the New York Central Railroad.

FDR would take the train from Washington to New York via the New York Central Rail Road line, and get off at Track 61. He could then go directly to his hotel, the Waldorf Astoria in complete secrecy without having to go through the station or onto the streets.

He'd take his limo on the train too. They built a special elevator for the limo to take it directly to the Waldorf's parking lot.
