This elevated station, built four stories above street level, has two side platforms and three tracks. The center track is used by the J and Z trains in the peak direction weekday midday and rush hours. Each platform has beige windscreens, green canopies, and red roofs that run from end to end.
The artwork here is called El in 16 Notes by Mara Held. It features sixteen panels of art glass, each containing random geometric shapes and is based on shapes found in dress patterns.
The station has exits on both the west (railroad north) end and the east (railroad south) end of its platforms.
On the west end, each platform has a single staircase leading to an elevated station house beneath the tracks. It has a turnstile bank and token booth. Outside of fare control, two staircases lead to the western corners of Broadway and Hooper Street. Each staircase landing has an exit-only turnstile to allow passengers to exit without having to go through the station house.
On the east end, each platform has a single staircase leading to a turnstile bank. Outside of fare control, a single staircase from each side leads to the eastern corners of Broadway and Hewes Street. The station house has been removed. These exits were closed in the 1980s due to high crime and served as emergency exits until 2018. They were reopened on November 16, 2018 to accommodate L train riders who would be displaced during the 14th Street Tunnel shutdown in 2019–2020. As part of the tunnel shutdown plans, these exits would also contain a temporary MetroCard transfer to the nearby Broadway station on the G train, during weekends and late nights. The transfer was honored through the end of May 2020, even though L train tunnel work was completed on April 26.
