Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Bergen Street
Bergen Street is an IRT local stop with two side platforms that are completely isolated from each other with fare control directly towards the middle of the platforms, and are both quite narrow. The tracks walls that face the two side platforms are completely tiled over because of the maze of tracks that exist between the two completely isolated station areas for trains in each direction, because both the IRT Express trains are running there, along with the Brighton Line, beneath Flatbush Avenue. Fare control consists of turnstiles that are fully staffed on the Manhattan-bound side, and a Customer Assistant booth that is staffed Monday-Friday only from 6am-9pm, on the Flatbush/New Lots-bound side. There are a couple of High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles on that platform to be used during other times. The area outside of fare control on each platform is relatively wide with two staircases from the Flatbush/New Lots bound side to the SW corner of Bergen St & Flatbush Avenue, and a short passageway to the SE corner. Their only columns, I-beam columns painted green are in the middle of the platform at the fare control area. The station has the dual-contracts era Squire Vickers ceramic tiling for a trim line that has an emphasis on green, with Bs at regular intervals that come out from that trim line. Blue is the background color used for the Bs, as well as the name tablets that have white text with a multi-layered green boarder. At the extreme ends of each platform is a very small area that has the 1960s tiling, with Bergen Street written on quite large, cinderblock looking tiles.
