Overview

Opened: 12/15/1940

Two side platforms and two tracks. This is a local station with two separate platforms, and no crossover between directions. The layout here is as follows (west to east, facing north): Downtown subway platform; downtown subway track; downtown PATH platform, downtown PATH track; uptown PATH track, uptown PATH platform; uptown subway track, uptown subway platform. The 6th Avenue Subway express tracks were built in the 1960s and are below all of that. Provision was left for the addition of side platforms along the express tracks if the need someday arises. An emergency exit from the express level is noticeable along the subway platforms.

The PATH and subway stations share the same entrance from the street, with the PATH platforms being accessed via an underpass below the subway platform and track. (That is, to access the PATH station you first go down from the street to subway mezzanine, then down to the underpass where the PATH fare control is, then up to the PATH platform.)
