Marcy Avenue is a station on the BMT Jamaica Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Marcy Avenue and Broadway in Brooklyn, it is served by the J train (all times), the M train (weekdays), and the Z train (rush hours).
This is the southernmost station on the Jamaica Line. Just south of this station, there is a short section of track continuing straight which once led to the Broadway ferry Spur. (For more information, see the J/Z article). As now configured, southbound trains runs over the Williamsburg Bridge, connecting to the BMT Nassau Street Line in Manhattan.
The station has had a renovation which extended the platform level station houses over the street and added exits on the south end of both platforms. The southbound side is HEET access only. The station is now fully ADA accessible, but there is no free transfer between directions. The 2005 artwork here is called A Space Odyssey by Ellsworth Ausby.
