28th Street (New York Subway)

28th Street Station contians four tracks and has two side platforms. The local trakcs are raised above the express tracks to facilitate braking and acceleration. The fare control is at platform level and does not currrenly provide for a crossunder or crossover, however, there is a closed corssunder complete with railings and a blacked out sign indicating its location. The token booth is unusual in that instead of a standalone structure, it is built into the tile wall. The station's ornamentation includes glass block wall artwork at the main fare control entitled Seven Ways 4 Twenty-Eighth, which was installed during station renovations in 1996. There is also an unusual back-lit station sign name, similar to that at 23rd Street station, at the fare control.
