Another View of the Avenue "P" Elevated Station - Winter 2011

This photo was taken in February 2011 from the Manhattan bound platform facing north towards Manhattan after an ice storm.   When the Avenue P station opened in 1919, and other stations along the Culver Line, the stations sported wooden platforms and wooden wind screens that had window panels.  In a modernization effort around the late 1950's to early 1960's, the wooden platforms were replaced by concrete ones and the wooden wind screens were replaced by drab windowless steel panels system wide.  Since that time, the Transit Authority is trying to make the station enviroment more friendly by bringing in art and some windows along the wind screens.
