Jay Street-Borough Hall was the previous name of this IND station before it underwent a massive renovation from 2007 through 2010. The station's original configuration was a full-length mezzanine with three exits, one at its northern end with a turnstiles and a staffed booth during weekdays and High Entrance/Exit turnstiles during other times, a central exit with full time fare control, and a fully unstaffed southern exit at the southern end of the platforms, with only High Entrance/Exit turnstiles. The full-length mezzanine had a completely continuous with a narrow passageway outside of fare control fenced alongside the north wall and the portion inside fare control for many staircases down to the platforms. The station also has two entrances that have fare control off street, with escalators and stairs leading to them from street level to the mezzanine. This is because the station is built directly beneath the former MTA headquarters at 370 Jay Street, and the former Board of Transportation Headquarters that built the IND. There is still a silver door along the wall of the Brooklyn-bound F platform where the money trains collections were taken to the vaults of the building before trucks replaced them. I remember seeing the money train doing this once in 2005 before the last money train operated in 2006. The station's platforms originally had blue columns on the Manhattan-bound platform and fully white tiled columns on the Brooklyn-bound one (since they were underpinning buildings). Before renovations the trim was a simple blue line with a black boarder along the platform walls with Jay tiled ever so often as the trim.
