Avenue U/Sea Beach Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Avenue U/Sea Beach Line
Avenue U is a standard trenched Sea Beach Line Station with two side platforms for the four-tracked line tucked beneath the backyards that encroach on the subway's open-cut. Both of these platforms have a series blue-green columns along the platform edge and peeling painted cream concrete holding up the platforms ceilings. The station has two entrances one at either end. Avenue T has only High-Turnstiles and is at the northern end, Avenue U has the full time token booth and regular turnstiles, otherwise each station house is identical, alongside the sidewalk, where the fare control equipment yields to a short staircase enclosed in metal panels and down to an overpass area where a single staircase leads from each side of it down to each of the platforms.
