The V Sixth Avenue Local was a rapid transit service in the B Division of the New York City Subway. Its route emblem, or "bullet", was colored bright orange since it used the IND Sixth Avenue Line in Manhattan. The V debuted on December 17, 2001 as a replacement for the F on the IND 53rd Street Line when the connection from the IND 63rd Street Line to the IND Queens Boulevard Line opened, to which the F was rerouted via this new connection.

The V was eliminated on June 25, 2010 as part of a series of service reductions to close a budget gap. To replace the V, the M was rerouted from Lower Manhattan and South Brooklyn via the Chrystie Street Connection, making all of the V‍ '​s former stops except for Second Avenue. Except for a brief period in early 2005, the V had had the same service pattern during its eight-and-a-half-year history. It operated weekdays only from approximately 6:00 a.m. to midnight on an entirely underground route between 71st Avenue in Forest Hills, Queens and Second Avenue in Lower East Side, Manhattan.
