Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<7th Avenue/Brighton Line
7th Avenue is a simple side platform station for a two tracked line, along a very confusing section of subway when the two BMT Brighton Line tracks are tangled in with the four IRT Booklyn Line's Tracks all running beneath Flatbush Avenue. The station itself has a fairly significant upslope from the northern end of the station to the southern. Fare control is towards the middle of the platform on a small mezzanine area that has a two staircases up from each side platform, and staircases up to either side of Flatbush Avenue, signs designate many different streets for the station's exits (including Carlton Avenue & Park Place) because of the confusion Flatbush Avenue brings to the street grid since it runs diagonally. 7th Avenue doesn't even travel any further north than Flatbush. In addition there is a closed staircase at towards the southern end of each platform, right near the existing staircases meaning there could have perhaps been a second exit at one time or a longer mezzanine. For decorations the station has the standard Vickers Dual-Contracts era mosaic name tablets that spell out 7th Avenue, the text is white on the name tablet above a background of blue, but some red and green tiles thrown in to make it more interesting. Yellow is the color that is emphasized in the stations trim. It has 7s in it at regular intervals because of the station's name. At the extreme western (northern) end of the station where the platforms have been extended, there is a 150s blocky tiled area that spells out 7th Ave.
