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.[2]

The original station, opened on February 25, 1908,[3] was modified slightly as a result of the building of the Sixth Avenue Line. 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.

The southbound platform was renovated in 1986.[4]

North of this station is the abandoned 19th Street station,[5] which was the original northern terminus of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad. It opened on February 25, 1908,[3] and closed on August 1, 1954.[6] 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 are The New School and Union Square.
