Classon Ave/Crosstown Line
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Classon Ave/Crosstown Line
Classon Avenue is a two track side platform G station although there is enough room between the two tracks for a center track that was never added that wouldn't platform at the station, and bypass it. This means that the mezzanine is slightly wider than at other G stations. Currently the stations only open exit is right in the middle of the mezzanine. It has three staircases out to the street from it to three of the four corners of Classon Avenue and Lafayette Avenue. Only the northern half of the former full-length mezzanine exists. Boarded up staircases and a fence that closes up a large area of darkness are the evidence of the former southern half of a full-length mezzanine. It doesn't look like it is used for anything new.
