Halsey Street is a two track two side platforms station with platforms that of offset from another with the Manhattan-bound platform a bit further east. The reason for this is because of Wycoff Avenue in this small section of this long street becomes the street between anomalies in the confusing street grid of names that is Brooklyn and all subway exits needing to be on a corner. Both platforms have exits at either end, the ones with turnstiles are at the western end, the Manhattan-bound platform with the still open token booth. These exits each have to staircases up to either side of their respective street. The part time exits with a single staircase up to the street are at the eastern end of the station. On the Manhattan-bound platform the western full time side leads to George Street, the secondary exit is to the NE corner of Norman Street. For the Rockaway Parkway bound platform the western main exit is actually to Halsey Street, the secondary eastern one the NE corner of Covert Street. For the wall decorations the theme is blue and gold, with blue in the background of the name tablets and gold in the solid squares of the trim. Green is the first outline color fallowed by gold and than more blue in the name tablets. There little blue Hs in the station's trimline.
