Overview

Opened: 12/15/1940

Transfer here to: BMT Canarsie Line

Two side platforms and two tracks. Another unusual and complex station, 14th Street on the 6th Avenue line ties together the pre-existing PATH subway (1908) and the BMT Canarsie line (1924) running crosstown on 14th Street. First, the local tracks were weaved through the complex in between the PATH and BMT in the late 1930s; then the express tracks were built later, in the 1960s. Again, the provision exists on the express level to add platforms if the need arises, but adding in the access to these platforms is going to be a serious engineering project!

A common entrance to the subway and PATH, with separate fare controls, is at the 14th street end. There is a typical full IND mezzanine over the station, largely unused and dimly lit. At the north end there is an exit to 16th Street. Fare controls are at both ends.

Transfer to the BMT Canarsie line is made from the south end of the IND 6th Avenue platforms. Stairways from each platform lead 28 steps down to an intermediate mezzanine, then down to the Canarsie Line's island platform.
