Encyclopedia > J (New York City Subway service)

The J Nassau Street Express and Z Nassau Street Express are two services of the New York City Subway. They are colored brown since they use the BMT Nassau Street Line in Manhattan. The J runs all the time, from Jamaica Center-Parsons Boulevard to Broad Street (except on weekends, including weekend late nights, when it is cut back two stops to Chambers Street). The Z is a rush hour-only skip-stop variant, running only in the peak direction. During rush hours and middays, the services run express in the peak direction in western Brooklyn (and the M provides local service); at other times, they are fully local.

What would become the J was numbered 15 when the BMT assigned numbers in 1924; this service was known as the Jamaica Line. The original service ran from the end of the line at 168th Street (which is where the BMT Jamaica Line ended until that part was torn down) to the other end at Chambers Street, making every stop except for peak direction rush hour trains, which operated express from Eastern Parkway to the Williamsburg Bridge. From 17:00 to about 18:30, these (outbound) trains made no stops between Canal Street and Eastern Parkway. 14 trains provided local service when the 15 ran express.
