Kings Highway is an express station on the IND Culver Line of the New York City Subway. Served by the F train at all times, it is located at Kings Highway and McDonald Avenue in the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The station has three tracks and two island platforms. Each platform contains a green canopy with black roofs that run for the entire length except near the north ends, where a control tower is present on the Coney Island-bound platform.
Trains going to Coney Island or Manhattan and Queens use the local tracks. The center express track is normally used only during rush hours to short turn trains not going to Stillwell Avenue. There are platform signs informing riders that some rush hour 179th Street-bound trains are available from the center track.
There are no express stations south of this station. Instead, the center track offers the option of switching to either local tracks between Avenue U and Avenue X or going into the Coney Island Yard just south of Avenue X.
This station has two entrances with the primary one at the northern end. From each platform, a single staircases goes down to an elevated station-house beneath the tracks. Inside is a token booth and regular turnstile bank. Outside fare control, two staircases go down to either southern corners of McDonald Avenue and Kings Highway.
