Description:
York Street is a station on the IND Sixth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Served by the F train at all times, it is located at York Street and Jay Street in DUMBO and is the only Sixth Avenue Line station in Brooklyn.

History

York Street opened on April 9, 1936, as part of an extension of the IND Eighth Avenue Line from East Broadway to Jay Street; the IND Fulton Street Line to Rockaway Avenue opened on the same day.

Station layout



This deep-level station has two tracks and one narrow island platform. Located at the southern end of the Rutgers Street Tunnel, it has round deep-bore walls with matte-finish white brick tiling and purple tile border; this tiling scheme is also present on the platform columns at the center of the station. The only exit, located at the station's north end, leads to the intersection of York Street and Jay Street; a sealed exit is at the south end.

To the north of the station, the Sixth Avenue Line continues via the Rutgers Street Tunnel to Manhattan; to the south, it converges with the IND Eighth Avenue Line and ends north of Jay Street. The Sixth Avenue Line tracks continue south as the IND Culver Line.
