This Station is currently going under extensive rehabilitation. No Brighton/Coney Island-bound trains will be stopping at the station until Fall 2010. This summery is of the station before it began going under reconstruction in 2008:
The Neck Road Station has two quite narrow side platforms for a four-tracked Brighton Line express station. These both have standard cream-painted windscreens along their entire lengths. There is a canopy only towards the center of the station's platforms. The station's single exit is beneath the tracks at street level between the platforms, two staircases lead down from each of the platform to a small underpass area. This and the doors out from the small station house are built directly underneath the embankment lead out to the southern sidewalk of Gravesend Neck Road (technically the full name of Neck Road) between East 15 and 16 Streets. The station house has the station's small bank of turnstiles and token booth. The station's entrance along the street has a nicely bricked walls.
