9 Avenue/West End Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<9 Avenue/West End Line
9 Avenue is an extremely unusual West End Line staiton and the only one located at and below a grade instead of on an el. The present open portion of the station consists of three tracks and two island platforms, the middle of the station has the bridge used by 9 Avenue to cross the rail line. From here two staircases lead up from each platform to a nicely restored BMT station house only one set (there were originally two, the other sealed) of doors can be used to reach the station that is more decorative than any on the Sea Beach line and is located at street level on the eastern side of the street across from the entrance to the 38 Street yard that is clearly visible from the rest of the station. The platforms are canopied for their middle sections (beyond the overpass) and exposed on all four ends. The northern (western end) offers a nice view of the 38 Street yard and surrounding area, and how the tracks rise up above the yard to reach the station in the first place. The leads into the abandoned lower level of the station are also clearly visible that was used by the Culver Shuttle until May 11, 1975 (Great External Website About it), there are also two locked staircases on each platform that lead to this lower level still with tracks in place and in non-revenue service.
