Overview

Opened: 12/29/1916

Two island platforms and three tracks. This is a very ornamental station spoiled by huge billboards plastered on both sides. The structure across Bay Parkway (also called 22nd Avenue) is concrete with geometric details.

The center track is used only occasionally for construction reroutes. Although the "M" train service from Metropolitan Avenue terminates here during rush hours, the switches are not present on the north side of the station to allow trains to terminate on the center track. There is a tower at both ends of the station as well as late 50s style mushroom lights at the south end. The ends have escaped windscreen. The mezzanine is metal with concrete floors, the side walls are tile over concrete and the windows have been covered over.

This station is located in a vibrant Italian neighborhood with lots of old world flavor. Good views of the street scene are had from the mezzanine and exit stairs.
