Ongoing Service Change: Sea Beach N Line Renewal

Renewing 9 stations on the Sea Beach N line

Coney Island-bound service is restored at Kings Hwy, Avenue U, and 86 St.

Coney Island-bound N trains continue to skip Fort Hamilton Pkwy, New Utrecht Av, 18 Av, and 20 Av until Summer 2019 due to ongoing station rehabilitation.

  • Manhattan-bound N makes all stops to 36 St.

Travel Alternatives:

  • For service to Coney Island, take a Manhattan-bound N to 8 Av, and transfer to a Coney Island-bound N.
  • For service to skipped stations, take a Coney Island-bound N to Bay Pkwy and transfer to a Manhattan-bound N.
  • D service to Stillwell Av is available to New Utrecht Av-62 St.
  • N customers may also consider alternative service and stations on the F line for service to Coney Island.

What we're doing on the Sea Beach N Line

Originally opened in the 1910s, these stations will receive the following improvements:

  • Reconstructed platforms and overpasses
  • Installation of elevators at 8 Av and New Utrecht Av stations, providing better accessibility
  • New stairways, handrails, and lighting
  • Repairs to canopies and columns
  • New technological features including upgraded communications systems, Countdown Clocks, Help Point intercoms, and security cameras
  • Installation of artwork

As we continue to make progress with the installation of elevators at New Utrecht Av-62 St, the following changes to access are in effect:

  • The transfer passageway between the upper level D platforms and the lower level Manhattan-bound N platform is temporarily closed.
  • For free out-of-system transfer with MetroCard, exit to street and use entrances at 60 St/14 Av for the D or 15 Av/63 St for the N.
