Marcy Ave is the first station in Brooklyn after trains cross the Williamsburg Bridge. This means the station provides excellent views (and photo opportunities) of trains going around the two curves as they leave the Williamsburg Bridge. The track that becomes the middle express track begins as a siding just before the station, with the station having two side platforms along the two through tracks, with the middle track clearly a siding track and can only be used for very occasional train storage.

The station itself is relatively simple and was recently renovated. The station has two exits, both of which have fare control directly on each platform, meaning there is no crossover or under, when trains are diverted for construction to the middle track between Marcy and Myrtle Avenues, passengers at the 3 bypassed stations are advised to ride all the way over the Williamsburg Bridge to Essex Street to backtrack and return to their skipped stations unless they have an unlimited ride MetroCard.

There are exits at the western (bridge) end of each platform, which is simply a HEET on the platform and a staircase down to the street. These lead down to Broadway, just east of Havemeyer Street.

The main exit is more towards the middle of the platform (slightly closer to the eastern end). Here there is a small station house along each platform, inside are regular turnsties. A High Entrance Turnstile allows passengers to bypass the station house and go straight to each of the station's 4 staircases. Since 2011, there is only a token booth along the Manhattan-bound platform with the Queens-bound platform now unstaffed. From the Manhattan-bound platform are streetstairs to the NE and NW corner, plus an elevator to near the NW corner to the NW corner of Marcy Avenue and Broadway. The Brooklyn-bound platform has streetstairs to the SE and SW corners, plus an elevator to near the SW corner of Marcy Avenue and Broadway. The two elevators, one each up to each platform makes the station fully ADA accessible.
