Livonia Avenue/Canarsie Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Livonia Avenue/Canarsie Line
Livonia Avenue has two side platforms on the Canarsie Line's embankment. The 3 train's elevated over Livonia Avenue passes straight trough and above the station's platform. There is a walkway and bridge over some non-revenue tracks that are parallel to the station that leads directly to an entrance to the Junius Street Station. Residents have been asking for a free transfer for many years, but none has ever been provided. The station has one main exit located beneath the platforms towards the middle of the two side platformed station. Staircases lead down from each platform to an intermediate level before becoming one staircase that goes down into the station's tiny station houseThere is also a set of two High Entrance/Exit gates directly on the Canarise-bound platform that lead to the bridge over the freight tracks and the Junius Street Station on the 3. The two side platforms were renovated in 2005-2006 and are wind-screened in their middles and exposed towards their ends. An Art's For Transit Installation was installed in 2007 but by 202009 was removed, . The MTA's website has a page for it with pictures, and NYCSubway.org has pictures taken in September, 2007. I've been trying to figure out why the artwork has been removed and can't find an answer.
