Overview

Opened: 12/28/1906

This station is about one block from the Junius Avenue station on the IRT New Lots line. There is a long foot bridge over the LIRR Bay Ridge line joining the two stations. The IRT line crosses directly above the Livonia Ave. platforms. Despite there being a walkway, there is no free transfer provided here.

Just south of this station is a spur leading to a small yard, which is known as the Linden Shops, which is connected to the IRT line as well. These spurs have no third rails, and are used by NYCT locomotives going to and from the facility. For detail of the track configuration in this area see the Linden Yard Leads track map.
