Myrtle-Willoughby Avenues is a G train station with a double name that only currently needs one, Myrtle Avenue, because the other namesakes exit has been abandoned. The station has a simple side platform layout with to Myrtle Avenue at the very northern end of each platform. There is a transfer between directions because of an underpass that is available, this means the Queens-bound platform is now unstaffed with 2 High Entrance Gates, and a High Exit Gates. The token booth is along the Brooklyn-bound platform. The station also has an abandoned exit to Willoughby Avenue (all the text below the name tablets are still there). There is simply a chain link fence on each platform towards its southern end closing this exit off. There are no more turnstiles but there is some separation fencing left. It looks like each of these exits had one staircase to the street. The text on the station's trim alternates between Myrtle and Willoughby. The trim itself is a light green with a darker green border. The name tablets have the light green boarder with a darker green background for the white text.
