88 Street-Boyd Avenue/Liberty St El
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<88 Street-Boyd Avenue/Liberty St El
88 Street-Boyd Avenue has standard design for a formerly BMT Liberty Street Line elevated station. There are two-side platforms each with canopies over most of the platforms minus the extreme ends. The station only currently has only one open exit to 88th Street towards the eastern end of the platform. It has the standard small station house and fare control area beneath the el with one staircase up to the platform and staircases to each side of Liberty Avenue. There used to be an exit to 86 Street at the western end of the platform. Evidence of the former station house is visible from street level beneath the tracks and platform, but the two staircases that used to lead down to street level have been removed. On each platform there is a gated off staircase that used to lead down to this station house, with Exit Closed Use other end of platform signs.
