Thats what is left of the Culver Shuttle, it use to go underground to the 9 Avenue Station (Lower Level) on the West End Line (D)

i know what i meant was does the structure go anywere because after 9Th avenue the Culver shuttle tracks still run next to 37Th street. so what i wanted to know does that structure go any lower or is that just it or does it go underground that it still has its tunnel portal.

Great shots, although the CMOS sensor ruins the motion pictures. Try catching the trains as they are not moving, since your phone camera is not good with moving objects.

Yes, it did go somewhere. When the shuttle was still in operation it would go from 9th Avenue (lower level) to the elevated stations Fort Hamilton Parkway and 13 Avenue before connecting with the BMT Culver Line at Ditmas Avenue. Look at the BMT Culver Line at nycsubway.org for more info.
