28th Street is a local station on the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of 28th Street and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan, it is served by the 1 train at all times, and by the 2 train during late nights.
This underground station, opened on July 1, 1918, has four tracks and two side platforms. The two center express tracks are used by the 2 and 3 trains during daytime hours. Both platforms have their original mosaic trim line, name tablets, and directional signs. Vent chambers are present and there is a closed newsstand on the northbound platform as evidenced by sealed windows on the walls. Blue i-beam columns run along both platforms at regular intervals with black "28" plate signs in white numbering on every other one.
All fare control areas are on platform level and there are no crossovers or crossunders. The main ones are at the center of the platforms. On the Bronx-bound platform, a turnstile bank leads to a mezzanine with a token booth and two staircases going up to either eastern corners of 28th Street and Seventh Avenue. On the southbound platform, a turnstile bank leads to an unstaffed mezzanine (its Customer Assistance Booth was removed in 2010) and two staircases going up to either western corners of 28th Street and Seventh Avenue.
Both platforms have an exit-only at their extreme south end. A single exit-only turnstile leads to a staircase going up to either northern corners of Seventh Avenue and 27th Street, the northwest one outside Fashion Institute of Technology for the southbound platform and the northeast one for the northbound platform.
The station has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2005.
