Overview

Opened: 7/1/1937

Broadway. The second of the three tile patterns described earlier begins at this station. This station formerly had a full-length mezzanine, but now only an exit at the south end remains. There are two open stairways on each side, with four closed stairways on each platform. On the mezzanine level at the south end, a tile wall closes off the northern portion of the full-length mezzanine. Glancing through the seams between the set of double doors revealed the additional stairways and old incandescent lighting. There is a significant water problem here, and the station has stalactites dangling from the ceiling, as well as stalagmites forming on the platform surface, reminding me of the closed Canal Street Manhattan bridge line platforms. A view of the tracks reveal a deteriorating track bed with running water. There was evidence of a recent fire on the southbound platform wall. Near the far north end is a high vault over the platform which may have been part of the South 4th Street IND Second System construction. An old Subway Sun poster was found on the center I-beams on the northbound side near the Conductor's mirror, and along one of the trackside walls there is a typical IND station name tile with the name "Broadway" spelled incorrectly!
