We've passed under the East River through the Rutgers St. tunnel, and arrived at this deep-level station, which has round deep-bore walls and a narrow island platform. Tile is matte finish white brick with purple tile border. The center of the station features round columns with the tile border and white matte finish brick. The ceiling features some barrel vaults. The north exit leads to York and Jay Streets. There are 32 steps to a long, steep ramp to the fare control. The upper mezzanine is dim and is the site of a new fan plant. There is no south exit.
