Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway/Canarsie Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway/Canarsie Line
Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway is the terminus of the Canarsie Line. The is situated at street level and is one island platform with two stub-tracks parallel to the Canarsie Yard. The stations exit's are at the end of the tracks (the southern end), where there is also the only free bus-subway transfer within fare control to the B42 to Canarsie Peir. In the area just after the tracks end, next to the station platform, the main exit is in a tiny station house just beyond the platform parallel to a gate that is the exit from the bus loop. Some passengers were also witnessed exiting the station through the bus loop's exit, with a policeman keeping an eye on them. There is a second bus loop beyond a large fence for other bus lines that don't stop within fare control. There is a secondary exit with only a High Entrance/Exit turnstile in a small shack, that is parallel to the gate that is the bus loop's entrance. A high fence separates this walkway from the main busway within fare control so it would be really obvious if people were using the busway to enter the subway without paying their fare. There is also an additional unstaffed exit to a municipal parking lot on the otherside (to the west) of the busway, this adds Canarsie to the very small list of subway stations with Park and Ride lots.
The stations platform is canopied for most of its distance. The canopy was added at some point after florescent lighting, since the lights are directly set into the ceiling and not added later. At the end of the tracks is a short, ADA compliant gradual ramp down to street level and the canopy continues to the small station house. The station has by no means been renovated recently, their still old font signs above wavy, now painted black, small platform windscreens.
