Overview

Opened: 7/4/1908

Transfer here to: IND 6th Avenue Line

Three tracks, a wall platform and an island platform. Trains to Jamaica use the "local" track of the island platform while trains to Broad St. The "express" track of the island platform sees occasional service during reroutes and construction but is otherwise unused. There is a crossunder between the two platforms. The wall platform has pictures of the Williamsburg Bridge being built along with a blue/gray "Essex Street" name tablet, and has bright blue accent tile on the wall. A tower is to the north end of the island platform. The fare control is located on the wall platform at platform level. The station has a partial curtain wall at the south end. Based on observations, the original station probably was the island platform and the wall platform and track probably added later. The old Essex St. Williamsburg Bridge trolley terminal is located to the south of the island platform's local track. The trolley terminal is used for signal storage. A track map of the area is available.
