Overview

Opened: 4/14/1918

Rector Street is next, with two side platforms. This station was redone in the NYCTA 1970s "large-rectangle" tile style, and very little of the original mosaic work survices. At the extreme north end of the northbound platform there is a name tablet mosaic and a small "R" along the upper edge. A mosaic border with "R" monograms is present in both the north and southbound fare control areas. During the 1970s renovations, the station was reduced in size by placing a false wall across the platform at the north end. From the northbound platform, one can see into the abandoned space on the southbound side, including the location of painted-over mosaic name tablets. The space on the northbound platform has been turned into rooms for various services (signals, electrical).
