High Street-Brooklyn Bridge/Cranberry Street Tubes
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<High Street-Brooklyn Bridge/Cranberry Street Tubes
The High Street-Brooklyn Bridge station is located at the Brooklyn end of the deep-boar Cranberry Street underwater tunnel beneath the East River. The station has a single island platform with two tracks with curved walls on either side of it. The curved platform walls have a two purple tile wide trim line, with a black boarder and High written in tile at extremely short intervals beneath it. The station has a narrow deep-level mezzanine just one short flight of stairs above the platform it used to be full length but a small portion of it at the western (northern) end of the station has been closed with an abandoned staircase still on the platform. It now begins right at the western exit from the station, at about halfway in between the center of the platform and its western end. This exit has a large bank of two narrow escalators, a staircase, and a wide (two people abreast) escalator, that leads up to an upper mezzanine area with turnstiles and a single double-length (its longer than many) staircase out to Cadman Plaza West. Walking up this staircase gives the rush of wind like being in a wind tunnel courtesy of the pressure differences between the underwater tube and the outside world. The stations second (also fully staffed, with just turnstiles and a Customer Service Agent, somehow this station hasn't lost staffing at this exit yet) is at the opposite end of the mezzanine beyond the eastern (southern) end of the station's platform, the closest staircase to the exit is in what would be the eastern (southern) end wall. The narrow mezzanine doesn't get any wider and there is a bank of two single-width escalators and a staircase that lead up to a small fare control area with a bank of turnstiles where there is one staircase up to Cadman Plaza East and Red Cross Place, on the south side of Adams Street and the approach to the Brooklyn Bridge. There is another tunnel that continues of decent length as it goes under Adams Street and the Brooklyn Bridge's approach to the station's final exit to Adams St North, near High Street, the station's one-block long namesake street.
