Kingston/IRT Eastern Parkway Subway
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Kingston/IRT Eastern Parkway Subway
Kingston Avenue is located on the quite unusual stacked Eastern Parkway Subway. In the station the express tracks stacked above one another on the northside of the line, and the local tracks on the south side. This means the station's two side platforms are directly on top of one another on different levels, on the southern side of the tracks. Here New Lots Avenue-bound trains are on the upper level, with Manhattan-bound trains on the lower level. Fare control is directly along the upper level platform and a bit set back behind the two staircases that lead down to the lower level Manhattan-bound platform. For fare control there is a single bank of turnstiles in front of the token booth with two street stairs out to either side of Kingston Avenue in the middle of the South mall, where the bike path is (between the main road and service road) of Eastern Parkway.
The platforms themselves have a design of being quite wide towards there middles near the station's exit (here is where there's a line of yellow I-beam columns), before getting quite narrow towards either end, and all four platforms ending with, at all four extreme ends a section with 1950s style block tiling. Here Kingston Avenue is written in white on a black background. The rest of the stations have their original dual-contracts era name tablets and trimlines. The name tablets say Kingson Avenue on a blue with specs of red and green background, with a inner golden-yellow boarder line, and an outer lime green boarder. The trim-line is a golden-yellow for its inner section with a narrow boarder of blue, and a wider outside boarder of the same lime green. There are Ks in the trimline at various intervals for the station's Kingson Avenue name.
