15 Street-Prospect Park/Culver Subway
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<15 Street-Prospect Park/Culver Subway
15 Street-Prospect Park gets my award of the most unusual IND local station I know about. The express tracks here have taken their own more direct route and are nowhere near the station. The station has a single island platform for the two tracks that curves a bit within the station. Above the single platform for the station's entire length is a narrower than usual mezzanine that has quite a few exits up to street level. At the northern end of the station the line is directly above with various exits to Pritchard Square, at the corner of prospect park where Prospect Park Southwest and West meet (also 9 Avenue and 15 Street), along with other streets. There is a small portion of the mezzanine within fare control that is isolated from the rest of it and has High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles. Continuing south along the mezzanine as it curves a bit there are exits in the middle and southern end of the platform to 16 Street, Hanson Place. There is a large portion of the mezzanine within fare control and another portion of it outside of fare control. High Entrance/Exit turnstiles are closest to each exit and the station's single token booth, across from its two turnstiles is towards the southern end of the station between the middle and southern exits.
