Church Avenue is a station on the IND Culver Line of the New York City Subway. Located in the Kensington neighborhood of Brooklyn, it is served by the F train at all times, and will also serve as the terminal of the G train beginning in late 2007. The four southern main entrances are located at the corners of Church Avenue and McDonald Avenues and lead underground to a full-time booth and standard turnstiles. The two northern entrances are located at McDonald Avenue and Albemarle Road and lead to a part-time booth and high-gate turnstiles. A long empty mezzanine extends between the north and south fare control turnstiles. Stairs on this mezzanine lead to platforms for four tracks below.
All trains use the local tracks. The express tracks are not used in revenue service. This station is often used in movies for subway scenes. It is ideal for filming, as the block-long mezzanine can be used for setting up production, and the express tracks can be used for staging subway cars without interfering with normal service.
Construction is currently taking place to make the station ADA compliant.
