 Notes

With a big article like this with large amounts of info in the "Basic Info" section causes great confusion. Luckily, after doing my own research, I have a basic idea of how this station is laid out.


Fulton Street Station is located inside the Fulton Center complex. The Fulton Center complex is a retail complex as well as a way to connect Fulton Street 2 3 4 5 A C J Z with Cortlandt Street on the R W and World Trade Center on the E via the Dey Street Pathway. The Dey Street passageway also grants you entrance to the Oculus where you can also find more entrances to Cortlandt Street on the R W and World Trade Center on the E, as well as WTC Cortlandt on the 1 train.

On a side note, you can access the E train via the R W platforms. You can also access Park Place on the 2 and 3, and Chambers Street on the A and C.


WTC Cortlandt on the 1 is a special station. Formerly known at Cortlandt Street, it is located inside the "Oculus" transporation hub in Lower Manhattan. It was formerly a regular looking subway station, but on September 11th, 2001, the station was totalled due to the collapse of the former twin towers. So for 17 years, the station was rebuilt into the current station. It's a very nice station, and I would like to give kudos the to the designer and the thousands of construction workers who helped make/construct this station.


Here is a general idea on how the Fulton Center/Dey Street Passageway/Oculus is laid out:

    Fulton Center:

  • Fulton Street 2 3 4 5 A C J Z

  • Via Dey Street Passageway:

  • World Trade Center E
  • Cortlandt Street R W

  • Accessible via the E R and W platforms:

  • Chambers Street A C
  • Park Place 2 3

  • Via the Oculus transportation hub:

  • World Trade Center E
  • Cortlandt Street R W
  • WTC Cortlandt 1

The outside of Fulton Center. As you can see, it's a glass building with a tumor/skylight on top.

This is what you see when you enter one of the doors. The subway lines accessible via the Fulton Center complex itself is the 2 3 4 5 A C J and Z. The rest is accessible via the Oculus transportation hub or the Dey Street Passageway.
This skylight is weird. Every time i'm here I can never find a way to take a relatively good angle of this weird ass tumor-skylight thingy.
