Grant Avenue is a station on the IND Fulton Street Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Grant and Pitkin Avenues in City Line, Brooklyn, it is served by the A train at all times.
This station has two tracks and one island platform. The column and wall tiles are textured Nile Green with "GRANT" going down vertically in dark green letters and the latter going horizontally underneath the tile band, which is set in a soldier course of dark Bottle Green bordered by the same Nile Green as the rest of the wall, albeit minus the textured surface.
The station's only entrance is 1950s-style station-house at street level, located next to a NYCDOT park and ride facility. Inside, there is a token booth, turnstile bank, fluorescent lights, newsstand, and three staircases to the platform.
South of the station, the line gains a center track from Pitkin Yard, leaves the subway and ramps up to elevated tracks. At the tunnel portal, another track from Pitkin Yard merges with the southbound local track. The line continues as three tracks, towards 80th Street station. The two yard tracks are located under the station.
