Overview

Opened: 7/1/1918

The tracks from the South Ferry and Brooklyn branches merge just south of Chambers Street station. This is a typical four-track local-express station with the South Ferry tracks on the "local" side and Brooklyn tracks on the "express". This station has a high ceiling and an active tower on the south end of the southbound platform, the ends of which split-the local portion rises and the express portion descends, matching the track alignment (a result of the platform lengthening projects). A handrail separates the two sub-platforms. There is a workspace for the NYCT Electronic Shop above the north end of the platforms.

The tile border plaque shows shows the first building of Kings College (later Columbia University), which was located around the corner on Park Place. There are uptown/downtown directional mosaics in the central mezzanine.
