The Clinton-Washing Avenues Station is a minor Crosstown Line Station that somehow has kept its full-length mezzanine, although the design of areas outside and inside fare control are extremely confusing. At each end extreme end of the platforms a crossover is present with unstaffed High Entrance and Exit Turnstiles to either Clinton Avenue (with two staircases up to street level to the NE and SW corners), or Washington Avenue (with two staircases up to street level at the NE and SE corners), these are the fare control areas that most people use and MVMs are present at both of them. These exits also lead to a more central mezzanine that has separated, fenced off areas for either platform, and the station's single token booth is in the middle of this mezzanine with two separate banks of turnstiles for the separated fare control areas for either platform, quite far away from either exit so its rare people actually wonder down to use it. The station was designed this way so both station exits could always be open even though it required circuitous routings of walking half the length of the platform just to enter the subway before high entrance gates ever started existing. There are also some more High Exit Gates towards the ends of the split mezzaninesThe station platforms have yellow columns at frequent intervals, light and dark green colors to the name tablets, and the standard Crosstown Green colored trim that have Clinton and Washington tiled one full tile beneath it.
