4th Avenue/9th Street is a New York City Subway station complex shared by the IND Culver Line and the BMT Fourth Avenue Line. It is located at the intersection of 9th Street and 4th Avenue in Brooklyn, and is served by:

  • F trains at all times
  • G trains at all times
  • R trains at all times except late nights
  • D and N trains late nights
  • M trains rush hours.

From fare control, which is at street level, sets of stairs lead downstairs to the BMT station. Heading to the IND station, stairs lead to a crossunder which connects both of the IND platforms before leading to the platforms themselves. The station is located at a viaduct and is at level ground. One side of the station is elevated while the other side immediately descends towards the tunnel portal.

This station was overhauled in the late 1970s. The MTA repaired the station's aging structure and overhauled its appearance. The original wall tiles, old signs, and incandescent lighting were removed to make way for 1970's style wall tiles, new signs and fluorescent lights. The staircases and platform edges were also repaired.

4th Avenue on the IND Culver Line has four tracks and two side platforms, with the express tracks seeing no regular service.

West of this station is a stub-end reversing spur entered only from this station. It is level, between the two express tracks, while the rest of the line ramps up toward Smith–9th Streets. East of this station, the line enters a tunnel towards 7th Avenue. This station is elevated, but at a lower altitude than the underground Seventh Avenue station, due to the steep slope of the land (hence the neighborhood name of Park Slope).

R46 G train switching tracks at 4th Avenue station when G service terminated at Smith–9th Streets prior to July 2009.

The MTA has announced a three-year rehabilitation of the station from 2009–2012. The arch that crosses 4th Avenue will be restored, and windows (which were boarded up in the 1970s) will be re-installed.
