Union Street is a local station on the BMT Fourth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. It is located at the corner of 4th Avenue and Union Street in Brooklynmarker, New York Citymarker, serving the communities of Park Slopemarker and Carroll Gardens.

In the late 1970s, the station's structure and appearance were overhauled, as with several other stations on the Fourth Avenue Line. Staircases and platform edges were fixed, incandescent lighting was replaced with fluorescent lighting, and the original platform wall tiles and mosaic signage were covered up with broader tiles and tablet signage. The station has two side platforms with separate fare controls that are not connected to each other.

The colored tilework forms part of the station art installation.

By the early 1990s, the station was again in disrepair and needed another reconstruction. The upgrade required the station to close and to be brought to ADA compliance. In addition to upgrading the same station elements that were replaced in the previous overhaul, tiling on floors and track walls, the public announcement system, safety threads along platform edges and trackbeds were replaced. The redesigned station also included an art installation by Emmett Wigglesworth called CommUnion. Reconstruction work was completed in 1994.
