Flatlands / Vanderveer Park / Nostrand Avenue Station

The Brooklyn IRT line (2 and 5 trains) terminates at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Nostrand Avenue, just north of the freight rail tracks. Triangle Junction, a new retail building housing a Target store was built just to the south of the IRT station betweeen Avenue H, Flatbush and Nostrand. The rear part of the parking garage for the building extends over the freight tracks. Presumably, a new station would be built under the parking garage or (more likely) to the west on the site of a fresh produce market that would be seized with eminent domain. A pedestrian tunnel could then connect the two stations.

During the Manhattan Beach Railroad days the Flatlands station sat somewhere east of Nostrand Avenue - perhaps where Triangle Junction is now. The name was changed to Vanderveer Park in 1899 and it lasted until passenger service terminated in 1924.
