IRT East Side Station

Opened: 1/16/1905

Local station with two tracks and two side platforms, under Broadway between Fulton Street (north) and Cortlandt Street (south). This is the first station of the IRT Brooklyn Extension program, which opened a few months after the IRT Main Line north of City Hall, and the first subway station to reach as far south in Manhattan as Fulton Street. The station has many ornate decorative elements, including a plaque depicting the steamboat built by Robert Fulton, fancy terra-cotta "F" plaques with greek frets, marble panels, and mosaic name tablets. The southbound platform also incorporates an ornate entrance to 195 Broadway which features fluted columns, engraved metal signs, ornate railings, and some blacked-out display windows. This station is now a registered New York City landmark. There are exits at Fulton Street and Dey Street on the southbound side, and Fulton Street and John Street on the northbound side. The transfer corridor to the other Fulton Street stations and the new Fulton Street Transit Center headhouse runs easterly from here under Fulton Street.

IRT West Side Station

Opened: 8/1/1918

Local station with two tracks and one island platform, under William Street from Ann Street (north) to John Street (south). The IRT West Side line from Park Place runs from there under Beekman Street and turns sharply into William Street just north of the station. The only mosaic is a small "F" along the trackside walls. The platform is very narrow with many stairways to the mezzanine. Exits are at Fulton Street, midway between Fulton and John Street, and at John Street east of William. The transfer corridor runs westerly from here under Fulton Street.

BMT Station

Opened: 2/1/1933

Local station with two tracks and two side platforms, one each on two levels, under Nassau Street from Beekman Street (north) to John Street (south). The northbound track is on the lower level and the southbound track on the upper level. The station is configured in this way due to the narrow width of Nassau St. Mosaics here consist of a name tablet and "F" mosaics along with the Grecian design border. This station has been recently renovated. There are exits at Beekman Street, Fulton Street, and John Street. There are stairways down to the IND mezzanine, via which transfer can be made to the two IRT stations.

IND Station

Opened: 6/13/1931

Local station with two tracks and one island platform, under Fulton Street between Broadway (west) and William Street (east). Even though this station was opened earlier than the BMT under Nassau Street, it is this station which ties the three other Fulton Street stations together. Transfer between the two IRT stations and the BMT is made via the IND platform and mezzanine. The tile band is lilac purple with a much darker purple border. On the IND line, this is the last stop in Manhattan, and its proximity to the East River is reflected in its round deep-bore tunnel construction. branches. Departing this station, we pass through the Cranberry Street tunnels to Brooklyn. As part of the Fulton Street Transit Center construction this station was officially renamed from "Broadway-Nassau Street" to "Fulton Street" in 2010. The tile name tablets on the platform walls were updated to reflect this.
