5 Better Names for the New Jay Street-Borough Hall Station

Posted By on Wed, Oct 13, 2010 at 2:14 PM

Jay Street-Borough Hall Station
Did you know that as part of its decades-in-the-making makeover and swallowing up of the nearby Lawrence Street station, the Jay Street-Borough Hall subway station in Downtown Brooklyn will be changing names to "Jay Street-MetroTech"? How cold and quasi-Orwellian does that sound, right? The Post points out that the new A, C, F, N and R superstation has been in the works since 2007, and completion is still a long way off, so maybe they're still taking suggestions for better names than the retro-futuristic "Jay Street-MetroTech."

Jay Street-Zee Street
  • In lieu of Some random Bed-Stuy block being renamed "Sean Carter Way."

Jay Street-Food Court
  • Seriously, the concentration of fast food restaurants at Jay and Willoughby is stunning.

Jay Street-No Mans Land
  • Ever been around here after 10pm? No you haven't! Nobody has.

Jay Street-Atlantic Yards 2
  • Because, you know, it's an almost equally massive perpetual construction site down there.

Jay Street-BKs Wall Street
  • Or is it more like Brooklyn's 14th Street?
