55th Street is a local station on the BMT West End Line of the New York City Subway, located at the intersection of 55th Street and 13th Avenue in Borough Park, Brooklyn. It is served by the D train at all times.
This elevated station, opened on June 24, 1916, has three tracks and two side platforms. The center express track is not normally used. Both platforms have beige windscreens along the entire length and beige canopies with green frames and support columns in the center. The station signs are in the standard black plates in white lettering.
The station house was renovated as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's 2005-09 Capital Construction Program. Square windows were installed in the mezzanine and chain link fences separate the street stairs with the platform ones.
The station's only entrance/exit is an elevated station house beneath the tracks. It has three staircases from the streets, one on the northeast corner of 55th Street and New Utrecht Avenue and two to either southern corners. Inside the station house, there is a token booth, turnstiles and two staircases to each platform at the center. The waiting area inside fare control allows free transfer between directions.
