nyc subway | rector street and greenwich street

Here is yet more of the original IRT tile work, this time in pinkish hues. I particularly like that while the entire line was thematically consistent with the tiling, each station had its own color scheme. As with the other stations on the way downtown, the mosaics here are principally identificational and directional. We’re also now in the part of Manhattan without numbers. That being said, i can’t emphasize how nice it is when your train pulls into a station and there is clearly visible signage letting you know where you are. You’d be surprised at the number of stations on other lines where you have to pretty much guess.

This station was closed and renovated for approximately a year following the attacks of September 11, 2001, because the nearby tunnels collapsed and the line was shut during that period.
