Kings Highway/Sea Beach Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Kings Highway/Sea Beach Line
Kings Highway is a standard trenched Sea Beach Line Station with two side platforms for the four-tracked line tucked beneath the backyards that encroach on the subway's open-cut. Both of these platforms have a series blue-green columns along the platform edge and peeling painted cream concrete holding up the platforms ceilings. The station has two entrances one at either end. At the southern end of the station is the entrance from Highlawn Avenue, a station house with only High-Turnstiles and one door into from the street. A portion of the station house has been turned into non-public usage with cinderblock walls enclosing a room. Kings Highway has the full time token booth at the northern end of the station with the station house in good shape and even intact windows. There are single staircases down from each of the platforms from each of the station houses.
