First Avenue/14 St-Canarsie Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<First Avenue/14 St-Canarsie Line
First Avenue is a typical 14th Street-Canarsie Line local stop. It has two side platforms each with only one exit. The side platforms are narrow enough that there are no support beams on them, the only ones are between the liness two tracks. This exit is accessed from a single staircase at the extreme western ends of the platforms. This staircase leads up to a small mezzanine area that is directly above each platform (There are separate mezzanines for trains in each direction-no free crossover/under). Each of the two small mezzanines has a token booth-On the Brooklyn-bound mezzanine there is a florist outside of fare control. Each mezzanine has two exit staircases that lead to adjacent portions of the sidewalk on the east side of First Avenue.

(1l5) A close up of stations 1s in the trim that is a typical BMT station using various shades of blues, greens and yellows. It is a sample of the what I consider more pretty underground stations to come as the L train meanders its way through Northern Brooklyn
