Flatbush Avenue–Brooklyn College is the southern terminal station on the IRT Nostrand Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Flatbush and Nostrand Avenues in Brooklyn, it is served by the 2 train at all times and the 5 during rush hours.
This station has been fully renovated. The platform is U-shaped with the platforms joined at the south end where the fare control is also located. Elevators allow access to the street. There is a cast bronze relief mural entitled Flatbush Floogies, created in 1996 by artist Muriel Castanis. This station has the distinction of being the only "dead-end" terminal station in the NYC Subway system that does not have a center island platform. It was built with 2 side platforms with the expectation that the line would be extended further south; this extension never materialized.
The 1996 artwork here is called Flatbush Floogies by Muriel Castanis.
