Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Eastern Parkway-Brooklyn Museum

Eastern Parkway-Brooklyn Museum is a simple IRT local stop. The station has two side platforms for the upper local level. There is a lower express level for express trains that skip the station beneath the local tracks. The side platforms each have a single staircase up to a small mezzanine area, towards there extreme western ends. This is where the turnstiles area as well as a free-crossover is provided. A single staircase leads up to street level, one is extra wide and leads up to the plaza in front of the Brooklyn Museum, as well as right next to the entrance to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. There is a second exit across Eastern Parkway from the Museum. The station was renovated in 2003 (a PDF of one of the take-one brochures when all Brooklyn-bound trains bypassed the station for the month of October is here). Each side platform has a the standard Dual-Contracts Vickers-era restored name tablets that are large and say Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum on two lines. These have white text on a blue background, with an inner mosaic line of green, a middle line of gold, and a brown outer boarder that has bigger tiles. The platforms also have the standard trim line, here the majority of it is green, with a gold inner boarder, and a bit of blue thrown in there as well. There are B's at various intervals along it. There is also a line of I-beam columns that are painted green along each platform, these have signs that alternate between Eastern Parkway and Brooklyn Museum.
