Transfer here to: BMT Myrtle Avenue Line

Myrtle Avenue station features an island platform. It is a transfer point for the BMT Myrtle Avenue Line ("M"), which is reached via an escalator link to the elevated line above. The mosaic band is set at eye level, rather than high up on the wall, with brick red, yellow, tan and light blue offset by indigo and maroon. Unlike the other island platform stations, the walls do not have girders showing. The ceiling is also lower than those at the other island platform stations.

Artwork

From Earth To Sky, Cadence Giersbach (2007). Located in the transfer between "L" and "M" trains.
