Overview

Opened: 8/23/1907

Curving over Coney Island Avenue, the next station is Brighton Beach, an express station. The express trains terminate here on the center tracks, while locals continue on to Coney Island. There is a crew room over the platforms near the south end.

The north exit to Brighton 7th Street as well as the south exit to Brighton 5th Street have crossunders and are pretty boring: despite being renovated, no mosaics or artwork were found. At Brighton 7th Street there is an escalator from street to mezzanine.

Artwork

Mermade/Dionysus and the Pirates, Dan George (1999)
