Graham Avenue is a station on the BMT Canarsie Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Graham and Metropolitan Avenues in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, it is served by the L train at all times.
This station has two tracks and two side platforms. Both platforms have their original mosaic tile band showing various shades of green and blue with peach and yellow borders. "G" tablets on a dark blue background run at regular intervals. The mosaic name tablets read "GRAHAM AVE." in gold serif lettering on a blue background and gold border. There are no columns on either platform.
Each platform has one same-level fare control area towards the west end (railroad north). Each one has a turnstile bank and two street stairs. The ones on the Manhattan-bound side go up to either northern corners of Graham and Metropolitan Avenues while the ones on the Canarsie-bound side go up to either southern corners. The Manhattan-bound fare control area has a full-time sales booth while the booth on the Canarsie-bound one is for informational use only. There are no crossovers or crossunders.
