Artist's Description

Coney Island – Stillwell Avenue (also known as Coney Island Terminal) is a New York City Subway station in Coney Island, Brooklyn, acting as the southern terminus for four different services. It is one of the world’s largest above-ground terminal facilities—and, in fact, one of the world’s largest elevated rail terminals—as well as the most energy-efficient mass transit facility in the United States. This large facility was designed at a time when Coney Island was the primary summer resort area for the New York metropolitan area, with all of the rail lines in southern Brooklyn funneling service to the area.

The station is located at the corner of Stillwell and Surf Avenues in Coney Island, the site of the former West End Terminal; it is the southernmost terminal in the New York City Subway (but not the southernmost terminal in the entire New York City Transit system, which is the Tottenville station of the Staten Island Railway). It has eight tracks and four island platforms, with trains entering from both compass north and south; however, it serves as the railroad-south terminal for all D, F, N and Q trains.

Nearby, tracks from both the BMT West End Line and BMT Sea Beach Line lead into Coney Island Yard.

The terminal is the new home of Transit District 34 of the New York City Police Department.
