Kosciuszko Street is a typical Broadway (Brooklyn) elevated renovated local station, it has two side platforms with the middle express track bypassing it. The station has one exit at the eastern of the platforms with a small station house below the tracks. It is currently a 'J' Skip-Stop station. This station house has street stairs down to the NW and SW corners of the complex 3 way intersection of Broadway, Kossuth Place and Lafayette Avenue. There are closed Emergency Exit staircases that are the remains of the station's original secondary exit with an emergency exit streetstair down to the NE and SE corners of Broadway and DeKalb Avenue. The station's namesake street does cross under the middle of the station but has no evidence of an exit today, perhaps it was a neutral name for other nearby streets.

The renovation at Kosciuszko St means it has generic metal signs along the platform windscreens.

The platform at Kosciuszko Street has a canopy for most of it, there are some places (where cross streets go underneath the elevated line) where a wire mesh replaces the generic metal windscreens allowing views into the neighborhood below.

A child looks out the window of a R32 J train that according to this sign is running in loop service or to nowhere from Jamaica Center to Jamaica Center (a Lower level of Jamaica Center to the Upper Level without changing directions anywhere would be possible via Coney Island)
