Overview

Opened: 6/22/1915


We now arrive in Queens, with the first station at Vernon-Jackson Aves. This station has two wall platforms and two tracks with fare control at the platform level at the Vernon Ave. (south) end, and three steps above the platform at the Jackson Ave. (north) end. There is no crossover or crossunder. The name tablet shows "Vernon-Jackson Aves." and there are directional mosaics "to Vernon Ave." and "to Jackson Ave." This station was the site of a night station agent being killed for the tokens. The result of this incident was a change in policy where night station agents do not have to empty the turnstiles after the evening station agent leaves unless police are present, a supervisor is present, or another employee is present (and that is left to the option of the station agent.) The construction and early history of this station and the tunnel to Queens are extensively described in the ERA publication The Steinway Tunnels.
