Overview

Opened: 4/14/1918

Transfer here to: BMT Canarsie Line, IRT East Side Line

14th Street/Union Square, an express stop with two island platforms, is next. The 14th St. station is approximately 30 feet below street level. This station has recently completed a renovation, with new elevators, platform tile, and paint (and numerous other improvements). A mosaic on the platform side walls is a depiction of "the junction of Broadway and the Bowery Road, 1828" (Lee Stookey, Subway Ceramics, page 84), now better known as Union Square. The mezzanine level has been reconstructed as well; some former passageways and stairways have been closed off, including one immediately adjacent to the southernmost staircase on the northbound side. The mezzanine has some new tile name tablets and some original directional mosaics ("To 14th Street" and "To 16th Street") which have been preserved. The mezzanine permits crossover and transfer to the IRT East Side Subway and BMT 14th St./Canarsie Subway.
