This PATH station has side platforms, which are not connected by a crossover or crossunder. The southbound platform shares a mezzanine area with the IND Sixth Avenue Line's station at 14th Street, yet the northbound platform exits directly to the street.

The original station, opened in 1908, was modified slightly as a result of the building of the Sixth Avenue Line.[citation needed] The platforms were extended to the south, and the northern ends were closed. This allowed the downtown platform to share a street entrance with the downtown IND subway.

North of this station is the abandoned 19th Street station, which was the original northern terminus of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad. It opened on February 25, 1908 and closed on August 1, 1954.[1] It is now used for storing mechanical equipment and is still visible from trains travelling between 14th Street and 23rd Street.

Subway connections[edit]

Direct New York City Subway connections include:

Passengers traveling from New Jersey must exit to street level, enter a nearby subway entrance, and descend to a separate subway mezzanine in order to access the IND station complex.

The entrances for New Jersey-bound PATH commuters are on the southwest and northwest corners of 6th Avenue and 14th Street. The entrance for 33 Street-bound PATH commuters is on the east side of 6th Avenue, midblock between 13th and 14th Streets.

Located nearby is The New School and Union Square.
