Overview

Opened: 4/29/1956

Two tracks, one island platform. This station has light green textured tile with a vertical "Grant" tiled on the I-beams and no name tablet. The wall tile is arranged "portrait" style - 5" x 10". The tile band is also laid out in a "soldier course" (full-height single tiles) and is dark chrome green with a celery green border. The mezzanine has an acoustic tile ceiling with fluorescent light panels set flush in it, and is at street level; it has a very 1950's feel to it. There is also a variation on the "soldier course" found here, with varying sizes of dark green tile with light green accents (see photo). Behind the stairs leading to the exit, the station ceiling is higher. At the south end of the station features the portal to the Liberty Avenue Elevated taken over from the BMT. A view into the tunnel from the south end of the platform reveals a third track entering from the right of the southbound track, having ascended from the yard. After clearing the portal, the line has a center track which is not in revenue service.
