New entrance opens at Jay Street MetroTech R train station

Straphangers in Downtown Brooklyn have a brand-new subway station entrance at Jay Street.



The new southeast entrance of the Jay Street MetroTech R train station boasts wide stairways, sleek gray tile and a glass elevator.



The station is on the ground floor of Ava Dobro, a new luxury high-rise that boasts an indoor pool and a pet spa.



It was paid for by the building's developer, who will also be paying for its upkeep.



The MTA tells News 12 that it is open to similar partnerships with developers.
