Clark Street is a station on the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at Clark Street and Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, it is served by the 2 and 3 trains, the latter of which does not stop here during late night hours.
Clark Street is geographically the westernmost station in Brooklyn on the Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line. It has one island platform and two tracks. Due to the deep-bore tunneling used to construct this part of the line, the station's walls are rounded. On the walls of the platforms are mosaics of sailing ships and large name panels reading Clark Street – Brooklyn Heights.
The platform has two staircases in the center that go up to a passageway, which leads to three elevators. The floor of the passageway contains a 1987 artwork titled Clark Street Passage by Ray Ring and the elevators go up to fare control, which is on the first floor of the now-defunct Hotel St. George. The station is not fully ADA-accessible, since there are no elevators or ramps that lead to the platform. The fare control area contains a small arcade of businesses and two doors that led to the former lobby and checking room of the hotel. The station's two entrances have awnings that read "Hotel St. George."
There is supposedly a locked entrance leading directly from the station to the nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park. A 2008 study by Brooklyn Community Board 6 examined the possibility of creating a new entrance to the station from the park; however, it was deemed economically unfeasible.
