1st Avenue and 3rd Avenue stations are cousins. The only difference is that 1st Avenue has a mezzanine and 3rd Avenue does not. Neither station has pillars, providing a wide open view from the platforms. Both stations have single exits located near one end of the station. 1st Avenue's exit is located at the far west end. Mosaic bands are similar, with 3rd Avenue adding brown to the mix of blues, greens and yellows.
