Overview

Opened: 12/14/1928

DeKalb Avenue is very similar to the preceeding Jefferson Street station, with a mezzanine at one end only, and platform-level exits at the other end. The mosaic tile bands here are predominately blue and brown with yellow and tan accents. New tile was installed in Summer 2000, at the west exit of the Brooklyn-bound platform. Here, we have a full frieze with icons, and all the correct "details". The colors, however, shift from the earth tones found in the original design, to more pastelized shades of rose, slate blue, yellow and peach. Some of the background tile is mottled, which is unusual for a subway station mosaic. This is a hand-made work, with all of the proper elements, including randomly-cut and set tiles in the center. Dual Contracts designer Squire Vickers would be proud.
