Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Marcy Ave/Broadway
Marcy Ave is the first station in Brooklyn after trains cross the Williamsburg Bridge. This means the station provides excellent views (and photo opportunities) of trains going around the two curves as they leave the Williamsburg Bridge. The track that becomes the middle express track begins as a siding just before the station. The station itself is relatively simple and was recently renovated. There are exits at the western (bridge) end of each platform, which is simply a HEET on the platform and a staircase down to the street. The main exit is more towards the middle of the platform.
