Can I transfer from the D N or R to the G line at this station without going onto the street? Is there a covered walkway that connects the two lines here? Just wondering cause I don't want to get caught in the rain if I don't have to.

The D and N usually don't stop at 9th unless they're running local for some reason, but you can transfer from the R to the F without going outside. You climb an indoor staircase. You have to take the F for one stop to transfer for the G at Smith/9th. The platforms at 4th Avenue and Smith/9th on the G/F lines are both outdoors, but there's a roof that covers most of the platform.

I think you'd be better off transferring from the (F) to the (R) at MetroTech. There are a lot fewer stairs over there compared to the transfer at 4th Avenue & 9th Street.

Oh Definitely! Those stairs @ 4th & 9th from the "R" to the "F" will give you a real workout! Once, a kid probably about 15 or so was climbing the stairs ahead of me. He was grasping for breath at the top. I didn't feel so bad, guess I was in better shape than I thought.

Nope, the D and G don't intersect. The walk from Atlantic is better than bothering with the G in all honestly.

Thanks, I will try to explain the elevator near Applebees to him so he can bypass the Atlantic crossing.

I don't mean to come off sounding sarcastic, or even nasty, but I cannot help wondering: why would anyone even have to ask these kinds of questions in the first place? We've got a perfectly serviceable subway map available for free (and there are two of 'em posted in every car in the system) that tells you exactly where connections can be made.

In any event, the only connections between other lines and the G in downtown Brooklyn are at 4 Av/9 St (F, R); Bergen St (F); and Hoyt/Schermerhorn St. (A,C).
