Overview

Opened: 2/11/1933

Two tracks, one island platform. This deep station has a similar round tube design as at Broadway/Nassau; it even has the same lilac purple and deep violet tile band. The closely-spaced captions read simply "High" and do not mention the Brooklyn Bridge. The station features a narrow, full-length mezzanine with escalators to fare controls at both ends. While there is no name tablet, mosaics indicating "To All Trains", "To Fulton Street", and "To Adams Street" are present in the mezzanine and are set in bright purple tile. A painted sign points the way to the nearby St. George Hotel and another indicates the presence of the nearby Red Cross Building. The station exits are on either side of Cadman Plaza - one on Adams Street almost directly at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the other on Fulton Street, opposite Cranberry Street. High Street itself (which runs for exactly one city block) is not really at the station proper, but the subway tracks do lead underneath it before turning south onto Jay Street, so the station's name is somewhat of a misnomer. New escalators are being installed at both ends. The Adams Street mezzanine is being reduced in size. There is a long passageway leading from the Adams Street exit to the stairs leading to the street above.
