Station layout

This underground station, opened on January 5, 1918, has four tracks and two side platforms. Both platforms are columnless and have their original BRT-style mosaics and station name tablets reading "28TH STREET" in Times New Roman font.

This station was renovated in 2001 by MTA New York City Transit. It sealed off and removed any evidence of a crossunder outside fare control while false curtain walls were installed at the north ends of each platform, shortening them by 10 to 15 feet, though the Brooklyn-bound platform is longer than the Queens-bound one. Tiles from a previous renovation in the 1970s were removed, restoring the station's original trim line and name tablets.

Mosaic artwork installed in 2002 is titled City Dwellers by Mark Hadjipateras.

Exits

Both platforms have one same-level fare control area at the center. Each one has a turnstile bank, token booth, and two street stairs. The ones on the northbound platform go up to either eastern corner of 28th Street and Broadway while the ones on the southbound platform go up to either western corner. There are no crossovers or crossunders to allow a free transfer between directions.
