The 33rd Street PATH station, opened on November 10, 1910, is located on Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas), between 32nd and 33rd Streets in Manhattan, under Greeley Square and just south of Herald Square.[1]

The present station is not the original. When the Independent Subway's Sixth Avenue line was being built in 1936 it was necessary to relocate the H & M 33rd Street station. The original station was closed in December 1937. A new terminal station located at 32nd Street was opened September 1939. Although the station is at 32nd Street, the 33rd Street name was retained.

Also, the H & M station at 28th Street, which had opened on November 10, 1910, was closed and demolished. As a partial compensation for the loss of the station, an entrance to the new terminal was opened at 30th Street. A "Gimbels passageway" was formerly used by pedestrians to connect to Penn Station a block to the west under 33rd Street, but was closed in the 1980s for security reasons.
