Rector Street is a station on the IRT Broadway-Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Rector Street and Greenwich Street in Lower Manhattan, it is served by the 1 train at all times. The station has two side platforms, and there is no crossover between the uptown and downtown sides.
After the September 11, 2001 attack, the subway tunnels around Cortlandt Street–World Trade Center collapsed, and the line was closed until September 15, 2002. During the intervening period, the station was renovated, and a double-crossover switch was installed south of Rector Street, which would allow this station to be used as a terminal during construction of the new South Ferry station. However, this service pattern has not actually been employed.
