It is on Broadway about 25 feet north of 42nd St (and is about 30 feet or so south of the original entrance/exit at 43rd St - which is being turned into an emergency exit).Going through Google Maps's street view (from 2021) it looks like they took the old entrance on 43rd and turned it into a Police Department station, possibly with the emergency exit off to the side.

When they took down the kiosk (way back when), they replaced it with a standard type of entrance which was still used until the station renovation project commenced. That entrance/exit is now to become an emergency exit (the concrete form is in place and now they have to put the hatch doors over it). The entrance hardware is still there although it has been dismantled (that section is behind blue construction panels until completion).The attached photo shows where the the original entrance/exit to the uptown local platform used to be at W43rd St & Broadway. You can see the steel hatch doors over what is now an emergency exit. The green stanchion at the top of the photo was used to mark subway entrances (it probably had a sign "IRT lines" on the top). This one most likely dates to the opening of the system in 1904.
