Lawrence Street (sometimes referred to as Lawrence Street-MetroTech) is a station on the BMT Fourth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. The station is under Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn, near the Transit Authority Building. It has a full mezzanine, and island platform, and two tracks.
The station is directly below the Jay Street–Borough Hall IND station. Construction of a free transfer between the two stations is planned as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's 2005–2009 Capital Program.
The platform for the "money train," where the BMT and IRT divisions drop off their collections, is clearly visible in the tunnel as viewed from the western end of the platform. The IND money platform is upstairs from the Jay Street station.
