Houston Street is a local stop on the IRT 7 Avenue Subway with two side platforms for the four-track line and no free change of direction transfer. The platforms have golden trimlines with blue and green boarders and Hs on a light blue background at regular intervals, there are also Houston St name tablets, white on blue, and a line of yellow columns lining the platforms. The station was renovated in the early 1990s. It has two main exits towards the northern end of the platforms. On the downtown side a bank of now unstaffed turnstiles and streetstairs at the NW and SW corners of Varick and Houston Streets. The uptown platform has a bank of turnstiles and the stops only token booth and streetstairs out to the NE and SE corners. Towards the southern end of the platforms there is a secondary exit with high turnstiles along both platforms that lead two the NW and SW corners on the downtown side and NE and SE on the uptown side of Varick and King Streets.
