Brooklyn-Queens Crosstown Local<Clinton-Washington Avs

The Clinton-Washington Avenues Station is a minor Crosstown Line Station that has kept its full-length mezzanine, although the design of areas outside and inside fare control are extremely confusing. At each end extreme end of the platforms a free change of directions crossover is present with unstaffed High Entrance and Exit Turnstiles to either Clinton Avenue (with two staircases up to street level to the NE and SW corners), or Washington Avenue (with two staircases up to street level at the NE and SE corners) leading down to a single staircase down to each platform, these are the fare control areas that most people at least enter the subway system via and MVMs are present at both of them.

These exits are also connected outside of fare control via a central corridor. In the middle of the mezzanine, not anywhere close to any actual station exit with the station's single token booth is in the middle of this mezzanine with two separate banks of turnstiles for the separated fare control areas down either platform, quite far away from either exit so its rare people actually wonder down to use it.

A mixture of chainlink and standard fare control fencing separates the portions of the middle of the mezzanine within fare control that has two staircases down to each platform. The station was designed this way so both station exits could always be open even though it required circuitous routings of walking half the length of the platform just to enter the subway before high entrance turnstiles become reliable. At each end of the area within fare control are high exit turnstiles, closer to the exits at each end of the station. The station platforms have yellow columns at frequent intervals, light and dark green colors to the name tablets, and the standard Crosstown Green colored trim that have Clinton and Washington tiled one full tile beneath it.
