Green St. (Orange Line)

Why, just why, did they have to sign the station as “GREEN” with an orange background? It’s like one of those tests that have you say what the name of the color spelled out is, but the background (and/or text color) is a different color entirely. Anyways, enough rambling, let’s look at the least-used station on the entire Orange Line, Green Street!

No, that’s orange!

So, the platforms are pretty bogstandard. You’ve got benches, wastebaskets, elevators and an escalator in one direction only. Furthermore, you have weird shelter things for the benches. I’m not sure why they’re here, but whatever. I’m also not exactly keen on the aesthetic style of brutalism used down here, but I’ve seen far worse *cough CCRI Warwick!*. Up in the mezzanine, it’s spacious, and the main entrance drops you off at the station’s namesake, Green Street. It’s pretty much all residential, with some shopping a few blocks away in either direction, and there’s also a park nearby. Neat! I’m also proud to state that the elevator doesn’t smell like urine!

Meh, not big on the architecture
I think I can faintly see Forest Hills, not sure though.
The mezzanine and escalator
The headhouse
What’s the T?
A park!
No urine scent!

The good: It’s quiet! Furthermore, there’s a certain charm I like about niche stations that are designed for small neighborhoods like this one. Like, I just enjoy their existence, and furthermore this station isn’t dingy. And, it doesn’t need bus connections.

The bad: Meh, not big on the architecture.

Nearby points of interest: There’s some parking on Washington St. and Centre St.! There’s also a few parks nearby.

Transit connections: Orange Line

Overall, I like this station. For what it is, it’s a nice small station that’s quiet and doesn’t try to be anything more or less than what it is. The architecture leaves some to be desired, though.
