Elmhurst Avenue/Broadway
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Elmhurst Avenue/Broadway
Elmhurst Avenue is a regular Queens Blvd Line station with a full length mezzanine. The mezzanine here is still fully intact but has the design of a single token both in its middle to serve both exits on either end, so there is no free crossover provided between directions. The three separate corridors of the mezzanine, one for access to the platforms for either direction and a corridor in the center outside of fare control are all separated by very cheep looking white chain-link fence. At each end of the mezzanine by either of the exits (either 82nd St-Britton Av or 45 Ave-Elmhurst Av) there are MetroCard vending machines and High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles (as well as the older High Exit Turnstiles) so most passengers using the station have no need to go anywhere near the token booth that is quite far out of the way.
The color scheme of the side platforms is teal trim (and the standard black border around it) with teal borders around the name tablets and the columns painted yellow. A lot of the platform tiling has been incorrectly patched together over the years but imperfectly giving way to some funny abbreviated spellings of Elmhurst. There are a couple of references to the city hospital at Elmhurst including what looks like an original hand painted sign.
