Bergen Street is a station of the IND Culver Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Bergen Street and Smith Street in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, and is served by the F and G trains at all times.
This station has two levels, each with two side platforms and two tracks. The local tracks are on the upper level, and the express tracks on the lower level. The lower level platforms are currently out of service, as express service has not been offered on the Culver Line since 1976. The express tracks are used only during service disruptions, but trains do not stop at this station, as the lower platforms are no longer in usable condition, and the stairways between the two levels are sealed behind locked doors.
At the north (Manhattan- and Queens-bound) end of the upper level, the Culver Line local tracks diverge. The F train ramps down to the lower level and continues north to enter Jay Street–Borough Hall. The G train stays on the upper level, then makes a hard right turn east under Schermerhorn Street to Hoyt–Schermerhorn Streets station.
