9th Street is the southernmost PATH Station beneath 6th Avenue. It lacks any direct underground subway connection like the other three 6th Avenue stations but is just a block and a half from the northern entrances to West 4th Street on the A,B,C,D,E,F,M. The station has a single narrow island platform for the two track line who's layout seems basically unchanged and crowded since its opening in 1908. This platform has a line of columns along each track and an arched ceiling. These were retiled in the 1970s-1980s in the normal light brown brick PATH tile scheme. The columns have the modern white text on blue square 9s for column signs. The slightly curved ceiling has silver sheeting, with a single line of florescent lights in the center of it. The platform walls are relatively bare with their original tubular cast iron plating. Along this are hanging blue signs that say 9th Street above a hard to see blue trimline with some red PATH Ps.

To exit the platform at the northern end is a bank of five turnstiles directly on the platform, the first/last car of trains stop awkwardly at the fence beyond the turnstiles. There are two MVMs before a staircase leads up to passageway. This passageway has walls of light grey tiling with a central white line with a green border and another green border at the top just before the arched ceiling full of pipes. Along this ceiling is one set of recently installed (in the late 2000s) colorful PATH decorative panels. This leads to another curve and a second staircase up to the street. Here are similar walls and two mosaics that are unique to the station. The entrance is along 9th Street on the ground floor (just next to a Citarella) of 424 Avenue of the Americas, a nondiscript modern apartment building at the NE corner of 9th Street and 6th Avenue.
