The Forest Avenue Station has a single island platform that is canopied for most of its length, and has definitely seen better days. The single staircase that provides access to the station exit is at the extreme northern end of the platform. It leads down to a small station house beneath the elevated where the Myrtle Avenue's unusual elevated line crosses a complex intersection at jump in the street grid and two staircases lead down to the street, actually at the SE and NW corners of the intersection of Putnum Avenue and Fairview Avenue, the corner of a triangle, with a tiny patch of shrubbery in the middle of it also formed that Forest Avenue is the third side of.
A R42 M train has left Forest Av.
