Concourse-Central Park West-6th Avenue-West End Express<50 Street

50 Street is a standard BMT Culver Line elevated station the stop is a local stop with two side platforms for the three tracks including the middle track that is occasionally used for diversions although it has never seen regular revenue service. The station platforms are canopied and windscreened in their mid sections but left to be exposed to the elements at their ends, although the windscreens continue a bit farther on the Manhattan-bound platform. The station had originally corrigated cream-colored windscreens, until the stop recieved a $9.8 million renovation, using Federal USDOT TIGER Recovery act funds.

In the middle of the platforms is where two staircases lead down to the station's only exit, a decent sized red station house nestled beneath the tracks where 3 doors lead to it form a single shared bottom landing for the two staircases. It has a bench and the turnstiles and token booth, some of the windows are of the little square pieces of opaque glass design that means the stop received some renovations in the late 1980s-early 1990s, these were replaced during the 2012 renovation. Exits from the staircases lead are out to two staircases down to each side (four in total) of New Utrecht Avenue between 49 Street and the 3 way intersection with 50 Street/12 Avenue. A relatively unique feature of the station is two of the street stairs are nestled directly beneath one of the platform stairs meaning there is not room for the traditional street stair canopy covering so this staircase is just open beneath the elevated structure.
