Overview

Opened: 8/23/1920

Transfer here to: BMT Franklin Shuttle

There are four tracks and two island platforms. A free transfer to the BMT Franklin Shuttle's Botanic Garden Station was added in 1999. This is also the last chance to transfer between New Lots and Flatbush Ave. trains.

Reader Carl W. writes:

The description of the Franklin Avenue station incorrectly indicates the presence of a former tower. Franklin Avenue is a gap station, that is a station where local and express trains stop. At the south end of the southbound platform, and north end of the northbound platform, was office space for dispatchers, known as assistant train dispatchers (ATDs). The assistant train dispatchers worked by using the register sheets to write train arrival and departure times, car numbers, schedules and crews. On the Eastern Parkway line of the 2, 3 and 4 trains, Nostrand Junction is an area located south of Franklin Avenue, and had a tower called Nostrand Junction. Nostrand Junction has been replaced by the Utica Avenue tower which is located at the Utica Avenue mezzanine. (Utica Avenue had assistant train dispatchers too.) The Eastern Parkway-Brooklyn Museum station had a small tower at the south end of the northbound platform until the 1950s.
