Morgan Avenue is a station on the BMT Canarsie Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Morgan Avenue and Harrison Place in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, it is served by the L train at all times.
Morgan Avenue opened on December 14, 1928, as part of an eastern extension of the Canarsie Line from Montrose Avenue, which opened four years earlier, to Broadway Junction, connecting afterward to the already-operating elevated line to Canarsie.

There are two tracks and two side platforms. Both platforms have their original BMT style mosaic trim line and name tablets that are predominantly earth tones of brown, tan, orange with white accents. There are "M" tablets for "Morgan" on the trim line at regular intervals and name tablets that have "MORGAN AVE" in Times New Roman font. There are also directional mosaic signs in the same style as the name tablets.
Both platforms have large square columns tiled in white since they are below buildings and not the sidewalk. All of them have name plates reading "MORGAN AVE" in black sans serif lettering on a white mosaic background.
This station has two entrances/exits. The full-time one is at the extreme west (railroad north) end. A long ramp from each platform leads to a waiting area that allows a free transfer between directions. A turnstile bank leads to a mezzanine with a token booth and three street stairs going up to all corners of Morgan Avenue and Harrison Place except the northwest one.
The station's other entrance is an unstaffed brick station house on ground level on the west side of Bogart Street on the T-intersection of Harrison Place. There are two exit-only and one High Entry/Exit turnstiles inside and one staircase to each platform at their east (railroad south) ends.
