Overview

Opened: 3/14/1913

Transfer here to: IRT East Side Line, BMT Broadway Line

Two island platforms with two tracks in use, two stub-end tracks (which enter from the north) are disused. The platforms are joined at the southern end past the bumper blocks of the center stub-end tracks. There is also a crossover and crossunder between platforms. The wall tile has not been replaced and only the "Can" in the name tablet is showing. The "C" mosaics are still present as is the Grecian pattern. There are numerous closed exits. There is speculation that the track alignment at this station might be changed to use only the renovated northbound platform. For detail of the track configuration in this area see the Canal Street Area Track Map.

Some relative depths of stations in the Canal Street complex are as follows, +/- 10 feet.

  • BMT Broadway platforms, 40 feet below street
  • BMT bridge line platform, 50 feet
  • Lexington Ave. subway platform, 20 feet
  • Nassau St. subway platform, 20 feet
