50th Street is a station on the IRT Broadway-Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of 50th Street and Broadway at the northwest corner of the Theater District, it is served by the 1 train (all times), and by the 2 train (late nights).
This is a renovated local station with no mezzanine or crossover. It was the first west-side station constructed as part of Contract I, the original New York City Subway construction contract, which opened in 1904. Original tile plaques at this station were removed during remodeling, but one of them has been preserved at the New York Transit Museum.
