Metropolitan Avenue (also Metropolitan Avenue–Grand Street) is a station on the IND Crosstown Line of the New York City Subway. The north exit leads to the mezzanine and the passageway to the L, which is split up so the right half leads to Canarsie-bound trains while the left leads to a crossunder to Eighth Avenue-bound trains. The mezzanine is full length, but the south portion is used by a police facility and as employee space and offices. IND icon tiles indicate "To Street and Transfer." The south exit is an emergency exit and leads to Grand Street. There is another exit in the center of the station that is now abandoned and sealed.

The 2000 artwork here is called "Signs of Life" by Jackie Chang.
