Structure at Avenue P

This elevated station, opened on March 16, 1919, has two side platforms and three tracks with the center track not normally used.

From June 7, 2016 to May 8, 2017, the Coney Island-bound platform of this station was closed for renovations as part of a $140 million renewal project on the Culver Line.[3][4][5][6] The Manhattan-bound platform was closed for a longer period of time, from May 22, 2017 until July 30, 2018.[7][8]


The station has a full-time mezzanine at Avenue P and McDonald Avenue. It has six staircases: two to the northeast and southwest corners of that intersection, and two to each platform.[9] There is a station facility constructed inside the mezzanine on the Manhattan-bound side, giving evidence that there was a third staircase that was removed at the southeast corner of McDonald Avenue and Avenue P.
