The 9th Street PATH station, opened on February 25, 1908, is located on 9th Street and Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas), in Manhattan's Greenwich Village neighborhood.

In keeping with the "style" of PATH station entrances in Manhattan, the 9th Street entrance is in the side of a building, immediately east of Sixth Avenue. Passengers travel down a number of stairwells and through a narrow curved tunnel before descending to the north end of the platform. 9th Street, like the Christopher Street station, has a center island platform.

A connection is possible to the New York City Subway B, D, F, and V trains on the IND Sixth Avenue Line and the A, C, and E trains on the IND Eighth Avenue Line at West Fourth Street–Washington Square, however the station is located a few blocks away.

After the September 11, 2001 attacks which resulted in the destruction of the vital World Trade Center PATH station, the 9th Street station experienced serious overcrowding. While the World Trade Center station has since reopened, the Port Authority still plans to build the second entrance (pending environmental review), despite local opposition to the project.[1] Residents are concerned that the project will endanger the surrounding neighborhood's fragile historic buildings (through the vibrations that a major construction project would cause) and disrupt business and traffic in the Village. The effects of September 11 did not end quickly. In 2002, 9th Street station was used by an average of 8,900 people per day, about 3.248 million per annum. This was 54% higher than the 1.496 million passengers that utilised 9th Street in 2001.

North of this station, at the curve, there are tunnel headings for a level junction with a never-built branch line that would have run into the IRT Astor Place station. The bellmouth for the proposed Astor Place connection north of this station runs for about 250 feet.

The station is served by the Journal Square-33rd Street and Hoboken-33rd Street services.
