Fort Hamilton Parkway/Culver Subway
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Fort Hamilton Parkway/Culver Subway
Fort Hamilton Parkway is a two side platformed station on the two-tracked IND Culver Line. The unused express tracks are directly underneath the station here before they take a different, more direct path instead of fallowing the local tracks more circuitous route via 15 Street-Prospect Park. The station has a very unusual layout for it's exits, there are only three exits to the street total for the station but all lead to locations quite far apart from one another because the station huddles the Prospect Expressway. The station by no means has a full-length mezzanine but has two tiny mezzanines at either end of the station. The mezzanine that is accessed at the extreme southern end of the station has a single staircase up from each platform and a small, unstaffed fare control area with a pair of High Exit Turnstiles and one of High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles. The exit to street level is simply a short passageway that ramps up to an area in a park right along the southern side of the Prospect Expressway and a bit of a walk to the closets street with Fort Hamilton Parkway. The fully staffed fare control area is at the northern end of the platforms, and is on a small mezzanine level immediately near the fare control area there is an exit up north of the Prospect Expressway to Greenwood Avenue and Prospect Avenue. There another narrow passageway of decent length that leads north (east) of the station's platforms to another exit to Reeve Place & Prospect Avenue. Right near the fare control area but outside of it is a fenced of staircase that leads from an area near the Greenwood Avenue exit outside of fare control directly down to the Manhattan-bound platform. This means at some point in time the mezzanine had a different layout for fare control. The station platforms have tiled over columns, an orange-yellow trim with a black boarder and Ft. Hamilton Pkwy written underneath it, and name tablets that are a light orange yellow boarder around white Ft. Hamilton Pkway text that is on a maroon colored background. Directional mosaics (towards exits and the station's platforms) are white text with this same colored background.
