8 Avenue/Sea Beach Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<8 Avenue/Sea Beach Line
The 8 Avenue/Sea Beach Line stop is the first after the express tracks of the fourth avenue subway leave it, and come up to the surface. The station has the standard dilapidated condition with the two paint peeling concrete side platforms with concrete canopies for the four-track (with only one of the middle tracks used) line. The stations single entrance is to 8th Avenue; located along a bridge across the trenched ROW is form the eastern end of the station. A single staircase from each platform leads up to an enclosed concrete overpass where doors lead into the small concrete station house that is above the middle tracks. There is an abandoned bridge towards the western end of the station that led to another secondary station exit. At this end of the platform the canopy ends and some old lampposts are also still in place.
