Greenpoint Avenue is a station on the IND Crosstown Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Greenpoint and Manhattan Avenues in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, it is served by the G train at all times.
This underground station, opened on August 19, 1933, has two tracks and two side platforms. Both platforms have a green trim line on a black border and name tablets reading "GREENPOINT AVE." in white sans serif font on a black background and green border.
Directly below the trim line are name captions reading "GREENPT" in white lettering on a black background, shortened due to the length of "GREENPOINT." Directional signs are below the name tablets and green columns run along both platforms at regular intervals with every other one having the standard black name plate in white lettering.
The station's full-time entrance/exit is at the south end. The large mezzanine above the platforms and tracks has three staircases to each side with directional mosaics reading "Brooklyn" and "L. I. City and Jamaica" and green columns. Outside the turnstile bank, there is a token booth and three staircases going up to all corners of Manhattan and Greenpoint Avenues except the northeast one.
Both platforms have an unstaffed, same-level fare control area at their north ends. Each side has one exit-only turnstile, one High Entry/Exit Turnstile, and one staircase going up to the south side of India Street and Manhattan Avenue. The one on the Queens-bound side goes up to the southeast corner while the one on the Church Avenue-bound side goes up to the southwest corner.
