This underground station, opened on April 9, 1936, has four tracks and two noticeably offset side platforms, with the southbound platform located roughly 300 feet further west (railroad north) than the northbound platform. The two center tracks are used by the A express train during daytime hours. The platforms have name tiles that read "KINGSTON - THROOP AV." in white sans serif lettering on two lines on a dark yellow background with a yellow trim line. Beneath the name tiles are small black station signs directing riders to either "KINGSTON" or "THROOP" Avenues in white lettering. The platforms are columnless except for a few dark yellow I-beam ones near fare control.
Under the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Plan, the station, along with thirty other New York City Subway stations, will undergo a complete overhaul and would be entirely closed for up to 6 months. Updates would include cellular service, Wi-Fi, charging stations, improved signage, and improved station lighting.
Each platform has one same-level fare control area. The one on the Queens-bound platform is at the extreme west (railroad north) end and has a bank of three turnstiles, and one staircase going up to the southeast corner of Fulton Street and Kingston Avenue. The one on the Manhattan-bound platform is at the center and has a bank of four turnstiles, a full-time token booth, and two staircases going up to either northern corners of Fulton Street and Throop Avenue.
