Overview

Opened: 12/30/1946

Transfer here to: BMT Canarsie Line, BMT Nassau Street-Jamaica Line

Express station with four tracks and two island platforms. This was the end of the line in the prewar IND work, although the station opened ten years after the rest of the prewar construction under Fulton Street. The stations farther south were added after the war. The newer stations had fluorescent lighting built in, a major innovation for the day, the late 1940s. The fluorescent lamps at the earlier IND stations was added in the 1950s to replace the original incandescent lamps.

The tile stripe is blueberry with a Delft blue border, which is clear-glazed. Originally it was olive green with a black border; it was refinished around 1990. The center I-beams have some old black on white signs and some at the west end are white tiled.

The fare control is at the Brooklyn-bound end of the station; this entrance also serves the J and L trains via newly-replaced escalators from street to elevated level. There's also a police precinct located in the mezzanine. If there was a former western end exit, there is no evidence of it any longer.

There is an active tower just past the Rockaway-bound platform's head end, and south of the station are leadins for a proposed extension along the Jamaica Avenue el.
