Overview

Opened: 2/2/1885

Leaving East New York, we view a trackway rising above the station. This trackway's purpose is not clear but was probably intended for future express service. A second level of platforms could have been built over the present platforms but this is all conjecture.

Alabama Avenue. Two tracks, one island platform. The exit is at the south end and has a wood mezzanine and concrete floor. The flyover trackway mentioned above ends just above this station's canopy at the south end. Alabama Avenue is typical of el construction of the time, i.e. entrances at one or both ends of the platform with fare control at platform level. This was also the case with the Myrtle Avenue branch between Broadway and Bridge-Jay Sts., and all the other stations on Fulton St., except Van Siclen which has a unique center mezzanine below track level.
