Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Sterling Street/IRT Nostrand Avenue Subway
Sterling Street is a stop on the two track IRT Nostrand Avenue Subway, the station has two side platforms. Each of these still has its original 1920s Dual-Contracts era tiling with Sterling St. name tablets on a brown background with a blue and brown boarder. The station's trim line is similar: a lighter brown for the main solid sections with a boarder composed of a mixture of darker blue and brown tiles. There is an intermediate line of green between these two boarders. At the northern end of each platform, where they were extended, 1950s style tiles have been added that have Sterling Street spelled in white on a brown background at regular intervals along these tiles. Both platforms, as well as the mezzanine area also have light blue I-beam columns along them at various intervals.
The station exit is located in a small mezzanine area between the center and northern ends of the platforms. Here a free crossover is also provided (the only free place to change directions from this station south to Flatbush Avenue). Two staircases lead up from each platform to this area, where there is the stations only bank of turnstiles facing the token booth and two street staircases lead up either side of Nostrand Avenue, and the north side of Sterling Street. Along this mezzanine area, both inside and outside of fare control, are for different large frames along the walls of drawings and paintings that look like they have been done by school children. I have no further information on this, if you do, please contact me
