Overview

Opened: 9/4/1885

Between Kosciuszko Street and the next station at Gates Ave., the line crosses Lexington Ave. where the remaining steelwork for the junction to the former Lexington Ave. El can be seen. Built in 1885, the Lexington Ave. line was the first el in Brooklyn. The section of el beginning here and continuing to Pennsylvania Avenue (three blocks east of Alabama Avenue Station) is also part of the original 1885 el route but was completely rebuilt as part of the Dual Contracts period of subway construction, 1916-1918.

Gates Avenue is similar to Hewes and Lorimer, this station has full windscreen and a closed north exit. The center windscreen is horizontal with some vertical windscreen at the ends. The mezzanine provides a crossunder between platforms.
