Overview

Opened: 9/13/1915

Local station. Golden yellow accent tile and the platforms have the same round columns as found at 45th St. The north exit at 52nd St. is an iron maiden exit only, while the south exit at 53rd St. has a mezzanine with crossover. Tile on the stairs at the south end is yellow and gold. Mosaics in the mezzanine indicate "Ft Hamilton and Coney Island" and "Downtown." (As at 45th St., downtown indicates to downtown Brooklyn.) The mezzanine has an odd jog in the passageway leading to the fare control.
