Station layout

This elevated station, opened on June 24, 1916, has three tracks and two side platforms. The center express track is not normally used.

The platforms have beige windscreens and brown canopies with green frames at their center and waist-high black steel fences at either ends. They are offset as the Manhattan-bound platform is more to the north than the Coney Island-bound one and both have electrical distribution rooms at either ends.

Exits

The station's only entrance is via an elevated station house beneath the tracks that has four street stairs, two to either side of New Utrecht Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets. The station house has cherry red doors, a clad wood trim exterior, and beige interior. There are also glass block windows and heaters. The fare control consists of a token booth, turnstile bank, waiting area, and two staircases to each platform at their center.
