14 St-Canarsie Local<Myrtle Avenue

Myrtle Avenue (Wyckoff Avenue) on the L train has a single island platform for the two track line, with Ms in the trim along the top of the platform walls. There are four staircases strategically placed towards the middle of the platform up to the decently sized underground mezzanine for the Canarsie Line.

In the middle of the mezzanine is the L trains own platform elevator, as well as the main elevator, and stairs (about 10 feet across from the L train's platform elevator) up to the main full time exit with turnstiles in a headhouse building that was fully renovated from 2004 through 2008. It is a triangular building, bounded by Myrtle, Wycoff and Gates Avenues, on a triangular intersection. The building has brick walls, green trim, and plenty of windows. The main entrance is along Wyckoff Avenue which has been turned into a pedestrian street.

This headhouse is also where the two escalators (one for each direction) can be found leading directly up from the mezzanine to the top level of the station house and the passageway that leads to another elevator and stairs complex up to the M platform.

Towards the eastern end of the mezzanine is a secondary exit with an underground unstaffed fare control area with High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles lead up to a couple of conventional street stairs up to the NW and NE corners of Myrtle Avenue and Wyckoff Avenue (at the three-way intersection with Palmetto Street). These exits are technically in Ridgewood, Queens and not Broolyn, because the borough and county line run down Wyckoff Avenue (curving north a block west at Gates Avenue) and runs down the middle of the station platform.
