Bushwick Avenue-Aberdeen Street has a fairly interesting design for an underground station. The station has two side platforms and is on a gentle curve. Just west of the station the L tracks stack on top of one another to go over a very narrow right of way with the Canarsie-bound tracks seeing daylight and the Manhattan-bound tracks not. This evident also in the station, the Canarsie-bound track is at a slightly higher level then the Manhattan-bound one. Fare control is also quite interesting, it is in a building at if not above street level, between the two side platforms, each of witch have one staircase up to it. After going through the turnstiles one must go down a short flight of stairs to reach the four doors out to the street. The entire station is tiled and gives the impression that it is entirely underground, although quite a bit of it has simply been covered over. The station a relative interesting pattern in the trim with B's for Bushwick. The columns are all tiled over with mosaics on them saying Bushwick Aberdeen, and unique fairly small name tablets for room for the station's two names.

(bushwick_aberdeenl3) Towards the western end of the platforms at Bushwick Ave-Aberdeen Street the Manhattan-bound platform is quite a bit higher then the Brooklyn-bound one, this view shows that with a name tablet quite a bit lower then it would be if the station was normal.
