Lorimer Street station is the transfer point between the IND Crosstown ("G") Line and the Canarsie Line.

Much construction is currently going on, with the exits proper closed off for renovation. Access to the station is via the IND Metropolitan-Grand Street "G" station entrances. There is a mezzanine at the east end, the west exit is inaccessible due to the construction.
