Gates Av is a typical Broadway (Brooklyn) elevated renovated local station, it has two side platforms with the middle express track bypassing it. It has the usual cream colored platform walls. The station has one exit at the western of the platforms with a small station house below the tracks. This has street stairs down to the SE and across from the T-intersection of Broadway & Quincy Street. There are also emergency exits from each platform at the eastern end of the platforms, here are closed street stairs across from each other at the NW corner of Broadway and Palmetto Street and across from this near the intersection with Monroe Street. It is currently a 'Z' Skip-Stop station. Gates Avenue, the name of the station passes under the middle of the platforms

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
