Queens Blvd Express·6th Avenue-Culver Local<Sutphin Blvd

Sutphin Blvd is a typical local stop on the Queens Blvd Line. Their are two side platforms for the four-track line with a full-length mezzanine, this is completely intact. The platform walls have yellow trim with a black border. The name tables are white lettering on black with a yellow border. Columns along the platform and the half columns along the mezzanine have been painted blue. The mezzanine is completely within fare control except for the exits at either end. There is a fence in the middle of it with an opening with a now removed gate designed to close off the now unstaffed end of the mezzanine when this entrance was part time instead.

The eastern end of the mezzanine contains the exits to Sutphin Blvd that has the full time token booth. Opposite of the turnstiles there are two addition sets of staircases that lead down to the very ends of each platform, the one to the Manhattan-bound platform is gated up but there is still a mosaic for Manhattan & Brooklyn. The 179 Street-bound platform's is still usable and provides a little short-cut to those in the front car with a staircase up to a High Exit Only Turnstile. This exit has streetstairs at the SW and SE corners of Sutphin Blvd and Hillside Avenue, along with another at what would be the NE corner if Sutphin Blvd didn't end at a T-intersection and went all the way through.

The other, western (railway southern) end leads 144th Street and has a nice wide entrance area but only high turnstiles (and payphone when I visited in January 2012 that had completely fallen off of its base). It has streetstairs to the NE and SW corners of Hillside Avenue and 144 Street.
