Greenpoint Avenue/Crosstown Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Greenpoint Avenue/Crosstown Line
Greenpoint Avenue is one of the few G stations that seems to have most of it's original station features intact. The full time exit at the southern (Brooklyn-bound) end of the station is to Greenpoint Avenue. There is a mezzanine that is about a third of the length of the station with three staircases down to each side platform. Each platform also has an exit at the other end with High Exit/Entrance Gates only to India Street. This means that many passengers are required to do the G-train dash because of the train's short lengths. The stations tiling is in relatively good shape with some missing in a few places. A tactile warning strip has been installed recently. It has the standard Crosstown Line Green trip with a black boarding and Greenpt written directly below the trim.
