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 station is not the original. When the Independent Subway's 6th 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 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 the H & M station at 28th Street which 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, as well as to the nearby Herald Square station of the New York City Subway. A "Gimbels passageway" was formerly used by pedestrians to connect to Penn Station under 33d Street, but was closed in the 1980s for security.
