Overview

Opened: 2/11/1933

Transfer here to: BMT Broadway Line

Express station with two island platforms and four tracks. 8th Avenue/Fulton service is on the "express" track and 6th Avenue service (from/to the York Street station and Rutgers St. tunnel) is on the "local" track. Tile band is blue and there is no name tablet. I-beams are tiled southbound and painted blue northbound. A closed tower is on the south end of the southbound platform, and an active tower is at the north end of the northbound platform. The mezzanine, which was once open along the entire length and width of the station, is now very fragmented. From the mezzanine there is a closed passageway under Myrtle Avenue which was used for the old Myrtle Avenue Elevated transfer. There is a direct entrance to the NYCT administration building which is "guarded" by a Transit Bureau police station.

In December, 2010, a transfer corridor opened connecting Jay Street-Borough Hall with the Lawrence Street-Metrotech Station of the BMT. The project began in 2007 and included full rehabilitation of the Jay Street Station, and installation of full ADA accessibility to both the Jay Street Station and Lawrence Street Station platforms. The new transfer connector runs from the east side of the Jay Street Station mezzanine to the (railroad) north end of the Lawrence Street station, a total distance of about a half-block along Willoughby Street.

The Jay Street-Borough Hall Station was fitted with a loading dock to collect cash from the transit authority's revenue train. Drop-offs for the IND division were made at a roll-up steel door on the side wall of the Brooklyn-bound F track by a consist of R-21 ex-passenger cars outfitted for revenue collection purposes. The TA no longer uses revenue collection trains. The MetroCard program has reduced the use of cash to pay fares, and today, the TA relies solely on armored trucks to transport revenue cash.
