Norwood Avenue is another typical J-line Fulton Street elevated station with a narrow island platform. It was rehabilitated in 2007; the station house is at track level, between the tracks on the extreme eastern (northern) end of the station at one of the canopied area that covers maybe two cars. It has three turnstiles that lead down a flight of stairs to a middle level where it splits leading to staircases down to either side of Fulton Street and Norwood Av.
