Brooklyn-Queens Crosstown Local<Greenpoint Avenue

Greenpoint Avenue is one of the few G stations that seems to have most of it's original station features intact. The stations tiling is in relatively good shape with some missing in a few places. A tactile warning strip has been installed recently. It has the standard Crosstown Line Green trip with a black boarding and Greenpt written directly below the trim.

The full time exit at the southern (Brooklyn-bound) end of the station is to Greenpoint Avenue. Here streetstairs lead down from the SW and SE corners of Greenpoint Avenue and Manhattan Avenue to a relatively narrow passageway, in this passageway is the token booth, followed by a streetstair up to the NW corner of Greenpoint Avenue and Manhattan Avenue right alongside the narrow bank of turnstiles. Passengers then continue a short distance underground before reaching the first platform staircase down to the southern end of each platform, the mezzanine continues about another car length before ending at a final staircase down to each platform.

At the northern of each platform is an exit to India Street. Here each platform has a small on platform fare control area, with just High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles, with the token booths closed and removed around 2003. From the Church Avenue-bound platform a single staircase leads up to an intermediate landing before a single streetstair leads up to the SE corner of India Street and Greenpoint Avenue, the Queens-bound platform has nearly the same configuration with the exit to the SW corner. G trains, running with only 4 to 5 cars, stop towards the middle of the platform meaning nearly all passengers must do the G-train dash because of the train's short lengths.

In December 2020, Greenpoint Aveune became the first stop only on the G train to become fully wheelchair accessible (only other previously accessible stop was Church Avenue). Each platform now has an elevator up to the mezzanine, from here the fare control area has been reconfigured to provide a short passagway outside of fare control on the east side of the mezzanine that leads to the new street elevator up to the east side of Manhattan Avenue between Greenpoint Avenue and Kent Street that is along the street, taking up some parking spaces. Right next to the elevator is the wheelchair accessible automatic gate for customers with AutoGate MetroCards.
