14 St-Canarsie Local<1 Avenue

First Avenue is a typical 14th Street-Canarsie Line local stop. It has two side platforms decorated with Blue name tablets with a complex squares trimline and little 1s in the trim. The side platforms are narrow enough that there are no support beams on them, the only ones are between the line's two tracks.

The station's original exit is accessed from a single staircase at the extreme western ends of the platforms. This staircase leads up to a small mezzanine area that is directly above each platform (There are separate mezzanines for trains in each direction, no free crossover/under). The 8 Avenue-bound platform has a token booth. The Brooklyn-bound mezzanine has a florist outside of fare control but the token booth was removed around 2011. Each mezzanine has two exit staircases. From the 8 Avenue-bound platform, these lead up both to the NW corner of 1 Avenue and 14 Street, caddy-corner to each other on the sidewalk, leading under the inner roadway that serves as a driveway for Stuyvesant Town Apartments. From the Brooklyn-bound platform, there is a streetstair at the SE corner of 14 Street and a second one just south of this staircase, along the east side of First Avenue.

Under the Superstorm Sandy Canarsie Line reconstruction project, the station received a new entrance to Avenue A at the eastern end of each platform. No free crossover or under were built with simply a new bank of on platform turnstiles on each platform. The entrance to the Brooklyn-bound platform has two narrower streetstairs up to the southside of 14 Street, plus an elevator just west of Avenue A. These staircases opened in November 2019. The entrances to the Manhattan-bound platform are located on a pedestrian island between the driveway that surrounds Stuyvesant Town and the main lanes of 14 Street, by a M14 SBS bus stop, also just west of Avenue A. Here there is a single, winder street stair, followed by the elevator. The staircase opened in February 2020. Both elevators opened on August 6, 2020.
