Chauncey Street is a typical Broadway (Brooklyn) elevated renovated local station, it has two side platforms with the middle express track bypassing it. The station has one exit, with two staircases down to the street (on either side of Broadway), not at the Namesake Street, but Rockaway Avenue, one the eastern end of the platforms with a small station house below the tracks. There are also emergency exits from each platform at the western end of the platforms down to Chauncey St. It is currently a 'Z' Skip-Stop station.

Looking down towards the back of the Manhattan-bound platform at Gates Avenue, all that is on this end of the station is an Emergency Exit with a sign saying to exit at other end of platform.
A Manhattan-bound train of R42s leave Gates Av, the rear car's sign saying 'Z' but it is really running as a local J since skip-stop is peak direction rush hours only
Another view down the platforms boring windscreens at Gates Ave.
