Overview

Opened: 4/9/1936

Local station with four tracks and two side platforms.

The tile band is deco green with a kelly green border; the name tablet reverses this color scheme. There is evidence of two possible closed exits here.

The mezzanine has walkways both inside and outside of the fare control at the South Portland end of the station. Mosaic directional signs pointing to South Portland Ave. and to South Oxford Avenue can be found in the mezzanine. Fare control is in the center; the north end exit has high exit turnstiles.

There is no free transfer between uptown and downtown, and no transfer to the adjacent Fulton Street station on the IND Crosstown line (but this can be done at Hoyt-Schermerhorn so it was probably not worth the extra cost to design these stations with a transfer).

There are skimpy signs for the LIRR Flatbush Avenue station and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, which are within walking distance.
