The New Lots Avenue Station is the terminus of trains on the Livonia Avenue elevated and the station has a single island platform, beyond the island platform the tracks continue no longer in revenue service, providing acress to the Livonia Avenue Yard, the only yard on the IRT that isn't the Lenox Terminal Yard or in the Bronx. This means the yard stays quite busy during rush hours with put-ins and take-outs for all four IRT Express Lines (2,3,4,5) since this is the only yard at those train line's southern ends. The station itself is canopied for most of its length and has the usual assorted buildings and kiosks on it including crew-quarters and areas for the train car cleaners. There is a single exit towards the middle of the platform that is accessed by two staircases down to a small headhouse beneath the platform where either two High Exit Turnstiles or a bank of turnstiles facing the token booth lead to two street stairs on eitherside of Livonia Avenue right at the East side of Ashford Street. New Lots Avenue, the stations namesake street crosses Livonia Avenue at a diagonal just beyond the station's exits.
