Chauncey Street is a renovated skip-stop station on the BMT Jamaica Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Chauncey Street and Broadway in Brooklyn, it is served by the Z train during rush hours in the peak direction and the J train at all other times. The southeast exit leads to Marion and Chauncey Streets and is only used for emergencies. The northwest exit has a crossunder and a metal mezzanine. It leads to Rockaway Avenue and Broadway.

The 2002 artwork here is called El-Views by Maria Dominguez and it features scenes of neighborhood life.
