This underground station has two side platforms and four tracks. The two center express tracks do not have any platforms. There are no ads in the station.
This station was an unfinished shell during World War II that couldn't be finished because of material shortages from the war effort. This meant the station got a sightly different tile job and design for the mezzanine compared to the rest of the local stations along the line. This station opened on November 28, 1948, along with the rest of the Fulton Street Line from East New York to Euclid Avenue.
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.
There is a crossover and a single double wide stairway from each platform to the mezzanine. Outside of fare control, exits lead to all four corners of Pitkin Avenue and Hendrix Street. There are no exits to Van Siclen Avenue itself.
