East Broadway/IND Rutgers Street Tubes
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<East Broadway/IND Rutgers Street Tubes
East Broadway is the last stop before F trains run through the Rudgers Street tubes to Brooklyn and because of it the station is quite deep. Some staircases even make 4 landings to reach the single island platform, and there are two station mezzanines: an upper that is mostly outside of fare control, right beneath the street and a lower that has been split into two by a non-public room and is no longer continuous. More evidence of this is from the staircase to nowhere and locked found in the middle of the platform. The track walls have a blue trimline and text beneath that says E Bway, Starting at the southern end of the station a street stair at the NW corner of Madison Street and Rutgers Street, this leads to a small fare control area and turnstiles to a mezzanine that ramps down to two staircases down to the platform. There is another long passageway outside of fare control that is amazingly still open that runs with some ups and downs almost an entire platform length, the another now unstaffed fare control area with a bank of turnstiles and some high ones as well. There are street stairs up to the NE and SW corners of East Broadway and Rutgers Street. From this entrance area there are two wide staircases down to a lower mezzanine, where they become three staircases down to the platform with one set dividing into more before becoming a single set at further intermediate levels. There is also an escalator that goes directly to the mezzanine area beneath East Broadway and leads closest to a high exit only turnstile that goes to the final northern street stair along Canal Street and Seward Park between where Canal Street begins at East Broadway and Essex Street.
