Broad Street is a station on the BMT Nassau Street Line of the New York City Subway, located at the intersection of Broad and Wall Streets in the Financial District of Manhattan. It is served by the J train (all times except weekends) and by the Z train (rush hours in the peak direction).
There are two tracks, served by side platforms. The northbound platform has fare control on a mezzanine above the platforms, while the southbound platform's fare control is on the same level. A complex passageway leads to the Wall Street station on the IRT Lexington Avenue Line. There is no free transfer, but one is available at the next stop north, Fulton Street.
Both this station and Fulton Street are normally closed on weekends, when the J train terminates at Chambers Street. However, due to the line's proximity to the IRT Lexington Avenue Line, passengers can connect to the 4 and 5 trains at Brooklyn Bridge for service south of Chambers Street while Fulton and Broad Streets are closed on weekends, since they are both in walking distance.
