Overview

Opened: 8/1/1918

Transfer here to: IND 8th Avenue/Fulton Street/Rockaway Line

Two tracks, one narrow island platform. This is a fairly deep station; although built first it runs east-west underneath the IND 8th Avenue/Fulton Street/Rockaway Line, which runs geographically north-south. At the east end is a long escalator, and a closed stairway with a mechanical room over the platform. Most of the station has a high ceiling. The only mosaic is a small "P" on the trackside walls. Exits are at Church Street and Broadway.

Some relative depths of stations in the World Trade Center complex are as follows, +/- 10 feet.

  • A/C Chambers St. Platform, 20 feet below street
  • E World Trade Center Platform, 20 feet
  • Park Place IRT Platform, 60 feet
  • BMT Cortlandt St. Station, 20 feet
  • IRT Cortlandt St. Station, 40 feet
  • Path Fare Control, 60 feet
  • Path Platforms, 80 feet
