This station is one of the highest elevated platforms in the city, sitting above the already-elevated BMT Jamaica Line. As high as this station platform is, it plunges abruptly into a tunnel at the north end. This end of the station slopes sharply downward, and the platform end is about 200 yards away from the tunnel's portal. A new crossover switch has been installed here. A fine view of the East New York Yard can be seen from the northbound platform. Note how the south end of the northbound platform divides into two "legs." Also of note is the now-unused "flyover" track, which connects the Canarsie and Jamaica lines. Now and then, a train being rerouted will use these tracks. The southbound tracks can be seen emerging beneath the two "legs" of the northbound platform; the northbound "flyover" with its severe curve can be seen just east of the station, beginning near the signal tower. Since 1999, this station has been undergoing a series of renovations, including new canopies, a new crossover (known as 'The Barn' because of its rustic red siding and white trim), and the removal of a hazardous crossunder. The old-style platform lights were removed and replaced with "loop" fixtures, widely seen elsewhere in the system. The Jamaica Line is a rapid transit line of the BMT Division of the New York Subway. ... East New York Yard (also known as DO Yard from its telegraphy letters) is a major rapid transit railroad storage yard and maintenance facility, serving the needs of the Eastern Section of the BMT Division of the New York City Subway system. ...

This station is the largest elevated complex in the system. When it was originally built, two elevated lines (the Jamaica and Fulton) converged and diverged at this large station complex, with the BMT Canarsie Line being added in 1928. Many artifacts remain of its former glory, including ironwork for the old Fulton El trackways which can be seen under the station. An interesting feature here is the mezzanine, which is above the platforms. It is used to connect to the Canarsie Line and to exit to street level via two long escalators. At street level, there is a transfer to the IND Fulton Street Line (which is underground) and the fare control area. The upper mezzanine extends most of the length of the station and is made of concrete. Windows were once present, but are now cemented over. Another mezzanine, now closed, is at the south end of the station. It is currently used for flagging operations. Renovation is planned for the entire complex.

History

The name Manhattan Junction or Manhattan Beach Junction was applied to the station on what is now the Jamaica Line when it opened in 1885;[2][3] the area had been known as Manhattan Beach Crossing since before then,[4][5] due to the crossing of the Long Island Rail Road's Manhattan Beach Division. A station on the Fulton Street Elevated at Sackman Street opened on July 4, 1889,[citation needed] when the line was extended to Atlantic Avenue.

A two-track one-half-block elevated connection was built along Vesta Avenue (now Van Sinderen Avenue) between the Fulton Street and Broadway Lines.[6] This connection, equipped with third rail, was opened on August 9, 1900, and new service patterns were implemented: during times other than rush hours, Lexington Avenue and Fulton Street trains were through-routed, and travel beyond Manhattan Junction required a transfer.[7][8] This "East New York Loop" was unpopular, and was soon stopped; the next service to use the tracks was the Canarsie Line to Broadway Ferry (later the 15), joined to the Fulton Street Line at Pitkin and Snediker Avenues in 1906.[citation needed] Third rail at the West Falls Church Metro stop in Washington, D.C., electrified to 750 volts. ...
