Nassau Avenue is a station on the IND Crosstown Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Manhattan and Nassau 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 "NASSAU AVE." in white arial font on a black background and green border. Small "NASSAU" tiles in white lettering on a black background are directly below the trim line and directional signs in the same style are below the name tablets. Green columns run along both platforms at regular intervals with alternating ones having the standard black name plate in white lettering.
The station's full-time fare control is at the south end. A short staircase from each platform goes up to mezzanine level. On the Church Avenue-bound side, one exit-only turnstile and one High Entry/Exit Turnstile leads to two staircases going up to either western corners of Manhattan and Nassau Avenues. The Queens-bound side has the station's full-time turnstile bank, token booth, and two staircases going up to either eastern corners of the same intersection. A raised crossover connects both sides both inside and outside fare control and is split in two by a steel fence. The mezzanine has mosaic directional signs in white lettering on a green background.
Both platforms have an unstaffed same-level fare control at their north end. On the Church Avenue-bound side, one exit-only turnstile and one High Entry/Exit Turnstile lead to a single staircase going up to the northwest corner of Norman and Manhattan Avenues. On the Queens-bound side, a single full height turnstile leads to a staircase going up to the northeast corner of the same intersection.
