This Station is currently going under extensive rehabilitation. No Brighton/Coney Island-bound trains will be stopping at the station until Fall 2010. This summery is of the station before it began going under reconstruction in 2009:
The Avenue M Station has two quite narrow side platforms for a four-tracked Brighton Line express station. These both have standard cream-painted windscreens along their entire lengths. There is a canopy only towards the center of the station's platforms. The station's single exit is beneath the tracks at street level between the platforms, two staircases lead down from each platform to a small underpass area. From the Coney Island-bound platform a High Exit Turnstile allows passengers to exit directly and not enter the station house. This and the doors out from the small station house built directly underneath the embankment lead out to the southern sidewalk of the shopping street that is Avenue M and crosses beneath the subway line. The station house has the station's small bank of turnstiles and token booth.
