R/W Trains - Whitehall St. (Day 5, stop #235)

Out: The exit here is right next to South Ferry, at the southern tip of Manhattan.  There are many tall buildings, as well as office workers and tourists of all kinds.

In: This station has a two platform, three track layout, where the W train lays up on the middle track at the end of its line and the R travels on the outside tracks.  There are white tiles on the sides of the walls, and metal columns in green.  There’s an intricate tile mosaic picture of a houe/church on the side walls.  The station looks recently renovated.  I take a long escalator up to the exit, and on the walls of the escalator are great 3-D tile scenes of early New York life.
