Overview

Opened: 5/1/1908

South of Borough Hall, the Contract I (East Side) and Dual Contract (West Side) IRT lines join to form a four track line, with a local (2/3 trains) and express (4/5 trains) layout. The Flatbush Avenue trunk line is quite complex, with the BMT Brighton Line trains using the two innermost of the six tracks in this area. The express tracks are at a lower level for a stretch.

Hoyt Street station has four tracks and two side platforms. This station has been renovated extensively in the 1980s. Old signs on the center I-beams between the local and express tracks read "Hoyt Street/Bridge Street". There is a closed entrace to the Macy's department store behind a grille at the north end of the southbound platform, which also used to serve as a crossunder between platforms. At the south end of the northbound platform is a closed-off passageway used by the police. One of the original ceramic cartouches has been preserved at the New York Transit Museum.
