Overview

Opened: 7/1/1937

Flushing Avenue. Two wall platforms with an 8-degree curve. There is a closed exit to Walton Street at the north end. Observations of this closed stairway reveal a dimly lit and spooky mezzanine/crossover with no lights except for work lights. The south end fare control is at platform level with no crossover or crossunder. Entry is via a token iron maiden; exit is via a new-style high gate right next to it (see photo). This station seemed very dismal and deserted on my first visit; I did not stay too long! A second visit found it to be somewhat less forbidding, but still a lonely and desolate place. There is a closed exit to Walton Street at the north end, along with a closed crossover via the mezzanine (now used for employee areas).
