Sorry to take us back to the NYC City Hall station, but I remember my dad telling me about several other stations in NY that had curved platforms. They had to have "gap fillers" to bring the platform closer to the subway car doors. They slid out when the train was in the station and slid back in after it left. Apparently the original trains had doors only at the ends of the cars, so there was no need for the gap fillers. When middle doors were introduced to the cars they were needed.
