Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Carroll Street/Crosstown Line

Carroll Street is the first stop on the short Smith Street Subway, daylight can be scene south from the station platforms has trains rise-up high to cross the Gowanus Canal and reach the Smith-9th Streets Station, the highest station above street level. The station is a local stop with two side platforms, and the express tracks rising up within the station from their lower level at Bergen Street, back to the same level as the local tracks. The station's side platforms have the usual green trim line with a black boarder above the Carroll letters tiled beneath it. The name tablets are completely the same shade of green (boarder and background) with white text spelling out Carroll St. The station pillars are more heavy-duty than most and are painted green. The station has two exits the northern end of the platforms exit to President St and Smith Street, and are unstaffed (with high entrance/exit turnstiles) directly on the platforms. At the southern end is a small overpass/mezzanine that is fully staffed with the 24 hour booth and a signs say the exit is to 2 Place & Smith Street, there is one staircase at the very end of each platform up to this overpass. The only street stair though is to the SE corner of 2nd Street and Smith Street, there is evidence from a fence to nowhere and crew rooms that once there was also an exit to the otherside of Smith St. The stations is named after Carroll Street, a street that the station doesn't have an exit to because it crosses Smith Street between the two exits.

Early 2012 Update:A new development at the NW corner of 2nd Place and Smith Street, 360 Smith Street includes a storefront subway entrance that leads down a flight of stairs and to the southern mezzanine station entrance.
