Kingston-Throop Avenues/Fulton St

Kingston-Throop Avenues is a IND Fulton Street Subway local stop that has two side platforms and no mezzanine areas, so no free crossovers between directions. The platforms are offset from one another quite a bit, with the Euclid Av-bound platform ending slightly more eastern, than the Manhattan-bound one that is slightly more western. The stations simple turnstile areas directly on the platform are offset from each other because Fulton Street at this point has no streets that go straight through it, instead it serves as a street where two street grids developed during different times meet, most streets don't even keep the same name. This gives the station a double name although each platform really could simply have a different name. The exit from the Euclid Ave-bound platform leads up to Kingston Avenue, a street that begins at Fulton Street and goes south, the Manhattan-bound platfrom's exit leads to Throop Avenue a street that leaves Fulton street and goes north. (If your curious to this anomaly in the street grid, here's a Google map of the area). Each exit has two staircases up to either corner of their respective street. The station platform's trim are a light yellow with a darker yellow boarder, the name tablets have the reverse combination, a dark yellow center with white text, and a lighter yellow boarder. The platforms are completely columnless except for a couple near each of the fare control areas and these are painted yellow.
