Overview

Opened: 11/28/1948

Express station, four tracks and two island platforms. Same 10" x 5" eggshell beige wall tile as the previous three stations; the tile band, however, is a delicate shade of lilac with a violet border, similar to the Manhattan Delancey Street stop. The I-beams are tiled and feature mini vertical name tablets reading "Euclid" along with the two-tone border motif (see photo). Away from the station center, there is a single row of these I-beams running down the middle of the platform. The south end of both platforms has an elevated crew quarters. The station has a crossover in the mezzanine along with an active newsstand.

East of this station, the trackwork is quite complex, first allowing for trains to enter the Pitkin Yard from either the express or the local tracks, then the connection to Grant Avenue station, also from either the express or local tracks. All four trackways continue, disused, east under Pitkin Avenue till approximately Elderts Lane. See the area track map for an illustration.
