Avenue M is a local station with two side platforms alongside four tracks. At the platform level, Avenue M station closely resembles that at Avenue J. Double-wide stairways from the platforms to the street-level access passageways lead into the station house, which is a brick building underneath the tracks facing onto the street. Avenue M was known as "Elm Avenue" in the early railroad days. From the train and the platform of Avenue M you see the tall landmark 'Vitagraph' chimney, on Avenue M just west of the railroad, way. Now part of a rabbinical school it was once the site of a prolific motion picture studio. The Brighton Beach line may have even been used for train chase scenes!
