Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Utica Avenue/Fulton St
Utica Avenue is an Fulton Street Subway express Station and was built to be a transfer stop to a subway line along Utica Avenue that was a part of the IND Second System that was never built. An uncompleted station for this four-track line two-island platform line still passes through the center of the station and the platform ceilings get extremely low. Before the station was renovated in 1996 there were closed off staircases up to these platforms. This means that the station doesn't have the standard mezzanines but does have two exits at either end of the two island platforms for the four tracks. The eastern end of the station has the full time exit to Utica Avenue, the western end is part-time turnstiles (a Customer Service assistant booth) and a High Entrance Gates for other times, to Fulton Park and Fulton Street. Each of these mezzanines have nearly identical but unique designs. The station is significantly deeper than most stations because of the phantom tracks passing through the station so right at the each exit there is a single double length staircase down to each of the island platforms, there is also a central ramp over the express tracks that gradually goes down before spitting and there's a single normal-length staircase down to each side platform. The platform's trim is a maroon color, with Utica in the standard individual tiles below it, the station has numerous columns all of which are painted in a maroon color.
