N/Q/R/W Trains - Canal St. (Day 5, stop #238)

Out: Chinatown! I've been there  a couple times now; see description of J/M/Z - Canal St.

In: The local platform in the station is very nice, but narrow!  The layout here is two platforms facing each other with two tracks.  The express platforms and tracks are on the lower level.  The floors are tiled, and there are white tiles on the wall with burgundy borders.  The station placards have beautiful mosaic tiling in bright blue, yellow, and burgundy, with “Canal St.” in English and Chinese characters.  There are red metal columns at the edge of the platform.
