Canal Street is a 7 Avenue Line local station renovated in the early 1990s with off white/brownish Canal St name tablets on blue with this same color inner boarder and a light green outer boarder. The trimline has the same colors except it is interrupted by small depictions of a steeple, what is St. Johns Chapel as the trimline depiction. One end of the platforms where they were extended has a simple wall of pink continuing the trimline, both platforms have a line of cream colored columns. For exits each platform has just one in the middle of the station that lead to a complicated area for pedestrians due to the entrances to the Holland Tunnel. The downtown platform has a bank of turnstiles that lead to an area that feels too large and empty because the token booth has been removed, this leads to two street stairs alongside each other at the NW corner of Canal and Varick Streets. The uptown platforms turnstiles that still have a token booth lead out to two street stairs at the NE corner of Canal and Varick Streets.
