Overview

Opened: 9/10/1932

Four tracks, two island platforms. This is the last Manhattan express station. Tile color is the same as Spring Street, and there is a "Canal Street" mosaic. The platforms are offset due to switches between local and express at both ends. A crossover between directions is at the southernmost stairs only. The full size mezzanine has been reduced by a police precinct and fare control is now in the center. The station is being renovated, but the floor tiles are already cracking and are marked for replacement.

South of the station the tracks split into two levels. These partly allow the future junction of the IND Second System Worth Street line, which has a turnoff provision in the tunnel wall, and to align the track to enter the peculiar Chambers Street station.

From this station clear to the World Trade Center the street is widened for the IND subway. The west side of Church Street was sliced back some 20m to acquire a corridor for the full four tracks of the line. The buildings on this side were either demolished, revealing bare faces on ther newly exposed neighbors, or they were truncated with new enclosures on the cut faces. Church Street was originally a seamless extension of Trinity Place and was wide enough for only a two-track line.
