Ocean Avenue - Brooklyn College - Manhattan Beach Junction

When these lines were first built in the 1870s, this intersection of with Ocean Avenue just to the southwest of Brooklyn College was Manhattan Beach Junction - where the Manhattan Beach line south to Coney Island separated from the main Bay Ridge Line. Because the Manhattan Beach Line was, effectively, a spur south off the Bay Ridge Line, termination of passenger service on the Bay Ridge Line in 1924 also terminated service on the Manhattan Beach Line. Freight service continued on the Manhattan Beach Line continued until it was taken up in 1937 and the right-of-way was relinquished.
