History

Construction started on the first IRT line in 1900. The part of the line from City Hall to just south of 42nd Street was part of the original IRT line, opened on October 27, 1904 including a local station at 33rd Street.

On April 13, 1948, the platform extensions to accommodate ten-car trains at this station along with those at 23rd Street, and 28th Street were opened for use.

On December 27, 1948, a new entrance at 32nd Street to the 33rd Street station opened for use.

Station layout

There are four tracks and two side platforms, with the express tracks in the middle, but at a lower level because of the presence of the Murray Hill Tunnel along this section of Park Avenue. The station was recently renovated, and contains eagle plaques similar to those at Brooklyn Bridge – City Hall. The plaques contain the numerals "33". Fare control is at the platform level. The station has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2004.
