The Prospect Park and Coney Island Railroad, commonly known as the Culver Line, was a railroad in the U.S. state of New York. Most of its main line, from near Wikipedia:Prospect Park, Brooklyn south to Coney Island, is now the BMT Culver Line of the New York City Subway. The company also owned a streetcar line from Prospect Park north to downtown Brooklyn, which later became the BMT's Vanderbilt Avenue service.
