Cortelyou Road is a local station on the BMT Brighton Line of the New York City Subway, located at Cortelyou Road between Marlborough Road (East 15th Street) and East 16th Street in the neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn. It is served by the Q train at all times. The Cortelyous were an old New Netherlands family whose immigrant ancestor arrived in 1652. The road and station are named for George B. Cortelyou, who served as Secretary of Commerce and Labor, Postmaster General, and finally Treasury Secretary, under President Theodore Roosevelt.

Station house

The station physically resembles the nearby Beverley Road station as the layout and station-house are both the same. There are some differences, however. This station has blue columns while Beverley Road has green, there is a signal house for New York City Transit use on the north end that replicates the station-house across the street, and the location of the station-house in relation to the platforms, is slightly to the north compared to the same location at Beverley Road.

The original station at this location was opened around 1900 as a two-track street-level side platform station running south from a grade crossing at Avenue C. The station was established to serve the business commercial area of Avenue C, a major thoroughfare which boasted the only east-west streetcar line between Church Avenue in Flatbush and Sheepshead Bay. The current station house and below-grade platforms were completed at the end of 1907. At the same time, the station was renamed from Avenue C to Cortelyou Road.
