WORTH STREET is no longer open to the public, having been abandoned in 1964 because of its proximity to the recently extended north Brooklyn Bridge station. Unlike the other abandoned stations on the IRT, however, Worth Street's platforms were extended before the station was closed. The station, as well as the extension, is similar to that of Canal and Spring Streets. On a slow moving 6 train, the word "Worth" can be seen on some of the station's tile-encased support columns, and terra-cotta "W"'s can be seen on the walls of the original part of the station.
