79 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 stop has two entrances, the northern ones consist of a single staircase down from each platform to a High Entrance/Exit Turnstile from the Manhattan-bound platform, and a High Exit Only Turnstile on the Coney Island-bound platform. This fare equipment is on a middle level outside a now closed to the public station house nestled beneath the tracks. These each lead to a single staircase on either side of New Utrecht Avenue just south of 77 Street. The staffed entrance is towards the southern end of the platforms, a single staircase leads down from each platform to a station house between the tracks. Here are the turnstiles and token booth and two staircases lead out to either side of the elevated just north of 79 Street and the diagonal intersection with 17 Avenue. The platforms are canopied and windscreened between the station entrances, while the extreme ends are left out to the elements with just a high wire mesh fence, except at the southern end of the Manhattan-bound platform where there is a full windscreen.
