Broadway/Crosstown Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Broadway/Crosstown Line
Broadway is one of the many G train stations that is in quite bad shape. It's appearance is quite contrary to those nearest at Lorimer St and Hewes St on the Broadway Elevated structure of the J,M,Z that runs directly above all of the station entrances, both of these stops were rehabilitated in the last ten years. There has definitely been quiet complaining for years about the fact there is no transfer provided here.
The station itself has various staircases down from Broadway & Union Av, which is a diagonal intersection that doesn't fit into the street grid here, these lead to a the turnstiles in a small mezzanine area that was definitely larger at some point because of newer looking tiled walls and doors, there are then two staircases down to each of the dilapidated side platforms at there southern ends. On the platforms themselves there is plenty of peeling paint and water damage. The station has the standard green name tablets and trim like all of the other crosstown line stations. The columns are currently painted with turquoise, peeling paint.

(broadwayg15) A view of the very back of the Brooklyn-bound platform at Broadway. This is where the eight car mark is provided for trains when one track operation is used. When the G is running regularly this part of the platform never sees any train service.
