This underground station, opened on August 1, 1918, is the southernmost in Manhattan on the Brooklyn Branch of the Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line. South of here, the line travels under the East River via the Clark Street Tunnel to Brooklyn Heights. The single island platform is between the two tracks, and very narrow compared to other stations in system. It has blue I-beam columns and dark blue floors tiles. The walls by the tracks have small "W" tablets on a mosaic trim except at the north end, where they have "WALL ST" written in black letters on white tablets over a green trim line. This is where the platform was extended in the 1950s.
There is a narrow full length mezzanine above the platform that has mosaics pointing to and connecting all four station entrances.
Entrances and exits
This station has four entrances/exits:
- The first exit is at the northern end of the station. It has a customer assistance booth with a bank of turnstiles and long passageway to a set of doors, where a short staircase goes up to the front entrance of One Chase Manhattan Plaza. Though signs at this entrance/exit say it leads to Cedar and William Streets, which are right outside the building, it does not go to the actual streets and the building entrance has no signs informing people that there is a subway entrance inside. This entrance is only open on weekdays.
- The second exit, also open weekdays only, contains a bank of turnstiles and passageway to a spiral staircase that leads to Pine Street outside 60 Wall Street. The passageway has an artwork called Subway Wall by Harry Roseman made in 1990 and installed after a 1993 station renovation. This exit also has a set of doors to two escalators and a double-wide staircase that go up to the public atrium lobby of 60 Wall Street. This entrance has two red globes and overhead signs, giving the impression of an outdoor station entrance built in the lobby.
- The third exit was the first to open to the station and is staffed full-time. It has a bank of turnstiles and staircases to the northeast and northwest corners of William and Wall Streets. The entrance at the northeast corner is made of ornate medal and has a sign reading "Interborough Rapid Transit Co-to All Trains."
- The last exit is at the south end of the station. A single double-wide staircase from the platform leads to two HEET turnstiles and two regular turnstiles. Staircases lead to the both southern corners of William and Wall Streets. This exit, though open at all times, is unstaffed as there is no token booth.
