History

The Dual Contracts, which were signed on March 19, 1913, were contracts for the construction and/or rehabilitation and operation of rapid transit lines in the City of New York. The Dual Contracts promised the construction of several lines in Brooklyn. As part of Contract 4, the IRT agreed to build a subway line along Nostrand Avenue in Brooklyn.[4][5][6] The construction of the subway along Nostrand Avenue spurred real estate development in the surrounding areas.[7] The Nostrand Avenue Line opened on August 23, 1920, and the Beverly Road station opened along with it.[8]

During the 1950s the platforms were lengthened at their southern ends, so that the platforms could be 510 feet long and as a result they were then able to accommodate 10-car trains.

This underground station has two tracks and two side platforms. Both platforms have their original IRT style trim line and name tablets. The trim line is pink with a brown border and "B" tablets for "Beverly" running at regular intervals. The name tablets read "BEVERLY ROAD" in a serif font on a brown background and pink border. The platforms only have I-beam columns near fare control in the center and these are painted yellow. The platforms are narrower and have cinder-block tiles at either ends, where they were extended in the 1950s to accommodate the current standard "A" Division train length of 510 feet. Here, there are signs reading "BEVERLY ROAD" in white arial font on a gray background.

This station's name is spelled with two "e"s while the Beverley Road station on the BMT Brighton Line on the same street is spelled with three "e"s. That is because the street is split in half at Flatbush Avenue. To the west, it is spelled with three "e"s and to the east, formerly with two.

Each platform has one fare control area on the same level and there are no crossovers or crossunders to allow free transfers between directions. The Manhattan-bound one has a small turnstile bank, token booth, and one staircase going up to the southeast corner of Beverly Road and Nostrand Avenue. The Flatbush Avenue-bound platform's fare control is unstaffed, containing two exit-only turnstiles, one High Entry/Exit Turnstile, and one staircase going up to the southwest corner of Beverly Road and Nostrand Avenue.[9]

Side platform

Side platform

A side platform is a platform positioned to the side of one or more railway tracks or guideways at a railway station, tram stop, or transitway. A station having dual side platforms, one for each direction of travel, is the basic design used for double-track railway lines. Side platforms may result in a wider overall footprint for the station compared with an island platform where a single width of platform can be shared by riders using either track.

Manhattan

Manhattan

Manhattan is the most densely populated and geographically smallest of the five boroughs of New York City. The borough is also coextensive with New York County, one of the original counties of the U.S. state of New York. Located near the southern tip of New York State, Manhattan is based in the Eastern Time Zone and constitutes both the geographical and demographic center of the Northeast megalopolis and the urban core of the New York metropolitan area, the largest metropolitan area in the world by urban landmass. Over 58 million people live within 250 miles of Manhattan, which serves as New York City’s economic and administrative center, cultural identifier, and the city’s historical birthplace. Residents of the outer boroughs of New York City often refer to Manhattan as "the city". Manhattan has been described as the cultural, financial, media, and entertainment capital of the world, and hosts the United Nations headquarters. Manhattan also serves as the headquarters of the global art market, with numerous art galleries and auction houses collectively hosting half of the world’s art auctions.

Turnstile

Turnstile

A turnstile is a form of gate which allows one person to pass at a time. A turnstile can be configured to enforce one-way human traffic. In addition, a turnstile can restrict passage only to people who insert a coin, ticket, pass, or other method of payment. Modern turnstiles can incorporate biometrics, including retina scanning, fingerprints, and other individual human characteristics which can be scanned. Thus a turnstile can be used in the case of paid access, for example to access public transport, a pay toilet, or to restrict access to authorized people, for example in the lobby of an office building.
