Hoyt-Schermerhorn Streets is a very unusual IND express station and across platform transfer point between Fulton Street Line A,C trains and Crosstown Line G trains. The station has four island platforms and six tracks in total, with only the central four tracks and two island platforms are currently in use. The outer two island platforms (The A,C trains platform at both tracks) and wall tracks are permanently closed and only saw about ten years of service for the Court Street shuttle, to that IND station that is now the transit museum. The tracks do see service at times for movie shoots and the station name tiling beneath the wall trim has been known to be for other stations from time to time courtesy of this. The station's former large full mezzanine have been cut apart in a completely ridiculous manor, now with a NYPD transit police station and other non-public areas. There are two staircases up from each platform to a small mezzanine towards the middle of the platform to where the station's only fare control area is, after fare control narrow passageways lead in either direction along one side of the former full length mezzanine to a single staircase at each end up to street level to exits along the north side of Schmerhorn Street near either Hoyt Street or Bond Street. Unusually, each of these exits is set at street level within buildings.

(hoyt_schermerhorna2) Looking down the G train's track at Hoyt-Schermerhorn Streets, the Smith-9th Streets bound track has been taped off since G trains aren't running there but are running in two sections between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Streets and Bedford-Nostrand Avs, (do to single tracking) and regular service north of Bedford-Nostrand Avs.

(hoyt_schermerhorna8) Because of construction F trains were running to Euclid Avenue this weekend with G trains replacing them to Coney Island, causing Hoyt-Schmerhorn Streets to become the major transfer point. This is a sign on the Manhattan-bound A track saying F trains are stopping there
