The beginning of the long central passageway that connects all six train platforms and three separate train stations begins at the northern end of the station where there is a small mezzanine area above the Brighton Line-B,Q platforms. Here are a couple of staircases, and a platform elevator that lead down to that line's single island platform. The Brighton Line platforms are quite deep and there is an intermediate landing level. To the norther is also a pair of High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles that leads out to an exit to Hanson Place. To the south is a High Entrance/Exit Turnstile that leads up to a single staircase and the platform for LIRR tracks 1 and 2.

Continuing beyond this mezzanine, the passageway ramps upward slighlty and begins to get a bit narrower as it cuts underneath the LIRR platforms. There is first a narrow staircase that leads up to LIRR tracks 3 and 4. There is a small set of turnstiles at the top of this staircase for fare control. The passageway continues and there is a nearly identical staircase with turnstiles at the top of it up to LIRR tracks 5 and 6. On the passageway beneath these platforms are LIRR destination signs telling passengers which track for which train within the subway station.

Just after the staircase up to Tracks 5 and 6 the passageway gets much wider beneath the IRT platforms. First is a double-wide staircase, an elevator and a smaller secondary one that leads up to the 2 and 3 Manhattan & Bronx Local side Platform as well as the station's main exit that is directly on that platform. Then there is another set of three narrow staircases and an elevator that leads up to the 4 and 5 Lexington Avenue Line Express Island platform, that serves trains in both directions. This lower level mezzanine area ends with another elevator, and a couple of narrow staircases that lead up to the New Lots & Flatbush-bound 2 and 3 train's local platforms, and a super, triple-wide staircase that leads up to the continuation of the passageway to Pacific Street that is at the same, higher level as the IRT Station Platforms.

There was an architect/artists collaboration when the station was redesigned with George Trakas, Hook (Archean Reach), Line (Sea House), and Sinker (Mined Swell), 2004. This means unusual stone is along the walls of this mezzanine and other mezzanine areas in the station.
