Beverly Road/IRT Nostrand Avenue Subway
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Beverly Road/IRT Nostrand Avenue Subway
Beverly Road is a stop the two track IRT Nostrand Avenue Subway, the station has two side platforms, with no crossover, so no free change of direction transfer. Each platform has its original 1920 Dual-Contracts era tiling with Beverly Road name tablets on a brown background with a pink boarder. The station's trim line is similar: pink tiles for the main solid sections with a boarder composed of a majority of brown tiles. There are Bs in it for Beverly at regular intervals. The tiling of this subway stop definitely has the most pink of any station around, unfortunately the MTA has decided not to order pink paint specially for this station to paint its I-beams that run only in the middle of each platform where the platforms are wider near the station exits (which are the IRT local stop standard-in the middle), these are painted an all to common dark yellow. Towards the ends of each platform they get narrower and even narrower at the extreme ends with 1960s extension refrigerator-block style tiling being used. This has Beverly written in white on a grey background.
The platforms are quite narrow towards the ends of each and become wider towards the middle as the stations exits are directly on each platform (no free-crossover or under) in the middle of each platform. Each platform has a single street stair up to street level The Manhattan-bound platform has the station's only turnstiles and token booth. The street stair is on Beverly Road just beyond the SE corner. Fare control for the Flatbush-bound platform is fully automated with two High Exit Turnstiles for passengers leaving the subway system and a single High Entrance/Exit Turnstile for passengers trying to get on Flatbush-bound trains. This is on Beverly Road just beyond the SW corner of that street and Nostrand Avenue.
