Exchange Place (WTC to Newark or Hoboken) is a deep level PATH station located on the banks of the Hudson River. It is a major transfer location to the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail. The fallowing is a discription of entering the station from street level. We approach the station:

After entering the station we go through eather set of two turnstiles which are on eather side of the escalators to the platforms

We then reach the end of the escaltators. Platform level reminds me of deep level tube stations in london. The escalators end in a passageway between the two platforms (on a track map it goes T-P-Space-P-T), we then turn in what ever direction we wish to reach. The platforms are narrow and have tubelar cielings. I belive the reason there is not just an island platform and not because of the escalator landing is because the twin tunnels enter Manhattan a few (would be) blocks apart because of the World Trade Center Station.
