H was the last of the letters assigned to original routes of the Independent Subway System of the New York City Subway in the 1930s. It was designated as the dedicated service letter of the IND Fulton Street Line in Brooklyn.

The letter was intended to be used for a Fulton Street local, to run from Court Street, an isolated stub-end station in downtown Brooklyn, to the future Euclid Avenue station near the border with Queens. The service, to be designated HH (the double letter denoting a local train) was to provide local service on the Fulton Street Line, with express service on the 4-track line provided by express train through routed from Manhattan. When service on the Fulton Street Line began, the Manhattan trains provided the local service, and the HH ran only as a one-stop shuttle to connect Court Street with Hoyt Street-Schermerhorn Street, where connections with other lines could be made.

During the mid-1980s and early 1990s, the Rockaway Park Shuttle train between Euclid Avenue and Broad Channel was denoted as the H and featured a white "H" on a blue background, similar to that of the A, C or E. Today, the H designation is not in external use, but is used internally when the Metropolitan Transportation Authority refers to the Rockaway Park Shuttle.
