The 33rd Street PATH station, opened on November 10, 1910, is located on Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas), between 32nd and 33rd Streets in Manhattan, under Herald Square.
The present 33rd Street station is not the original. When the Independent Subway's Sixth Avenue line was being built in 1936 it was necessary to relocate the H & M 33rd Street station. The original station was closed in December 1937. A 33rd Street new terminal station located at 32nd Street was opened September 1939. Although the station is at 32nd Street, the 33rd Street name was retained.
In addition 33rd Street the H & M station at 28th Street, which had opened November 10, 1910, was closed and demolished. As a partial compensation for the loss of the station an entrance to the new terminal was opened at 30th Street.
Connections are available at Penn Station a quarter mile (400 meters) away, to Amtrak, Long Island Rail Road, and New Jersey Transit. Connections to the New York City Subway are at the 34th Street – Penn Station (1 2 3 trains) and the 34th Street – Herald Square (B D F M N Q R trains) stations. A "Gimbels passageway" was formerly used by pedestrians to connect to Penn Station under 33rd Street, but was closed in the 1980s for security.
