Overview

Opened: 8/19/1933

Greenpoint Avenue. This station and has a crossover at the south end and platform level fare control at the north end. Directional mosaics "to Brooklyn" and "to L. I. City and Jamaica". The white-on-black station name captions are abbreviated "GREENPT" rather than having the full name spelled out; possibly due to the length of the name "Greenpoint" and the fact that the tile band is staggered in places - the caption would not have fit there. Like at Nassau Avenue, there is no white tile separating the forest green tile band and the captions. There is a section of lower ceiling at about the midpoint of the station platform. A sign in the mezzanine advises of both Hoyt Street and Church Avenue destinations.
