Neptune Avenue is a station on the Culver Line, and the only intermediate one that has only two tracks (It is true that there are only two tracks for the Culver Line at West 8 St-NY Aquarium, and Coney Island, but those stops are shared with other lines). The station has a single island platform to serve this function, and the station was completely rebuilt when it was closed from 2002 to 2004 for Stillwell Avenue Reconstruction reasons. This means it has the design features of a modern elevated station. Most of the station's platform is exposed to elements, with tiny windscreens beneath the Neptune Avenue Station signs, many of witch have stained glass artwork inside of them. Towards the middle of the platform it is canopied, this is also where the two staircases lead down to the stations small headhouse area, that is nestled beneath the tracks and where a single bank of turnstiles, as well as a High Exit Turnstile to provide faster access, to the stations two exit staircases on eitherside of West 6th Street, just north of its intersection with Neptune Avenue.
