Mosaic border

The station has two side platforms and four tracks with no crossover or crossunder.[5]

There are "store window"-style art displays on the southbound platform and a faux-newsstand on the northbound side.[5] Although the station's original wall tiling was replaced during renovations, its mosaic bands were kept; there are "Franklin Street" large mosaics, small "F" mosaics and directional mosaics "To Franklin St." and "To North Moore St."[5] The floor tiles are rose-colored.[5]


The full-time entrance is on the uptown side, on a traffic island where Varick Street and West Broadway meet.[6] There is a kiosk reminiscent of the original IRT kiosks at 72nd Street and Bowling Green, but it was added during the station's renovation during the mid-1990s.[5] There are two downtown street stair entrances on either western corner of Varick and Franklin Streets, but the booth is not staffed at all times. There are part-time high-exit turnstiles one block north, at both northern corners of Varick and North Moore Streets, on both the uptown and downtown sides.[6]
