Flatbush Avenue, also called the Atlantic Terminal, is the westernmost stop on the Long Island Rail Road's Atlantic Branch at Flatbush Avenue and Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. It is the primary terminal for the Far Rockaway, Hempstead, and, on weekdays, West Hempstead Branches. It serves Downtown Brooklyn and, via a subway connection, Lower Manhattan.

It is located in the City Terminal Zone, and is in the CityTicket program. It is in the LIRR's Zone 1.

Subway & Bus Connections

It is near several subway lines. The Atlantic Avenue IRT, Atlantic Avenue BMT, Atlantic Avenue–Pacific Street BMT are inside the same station, while the Fulton Street and Lafayette Avenue stations are three and four blocks northeast respectively.

It also has connections to some bus routes: B41, B45, B63, B65, and B67.

Nearby attractions

It is close to the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower and the recently-constructed Atlantic Terminal Mall.

Tracks and platforms

It has six tracks and three platforms.

* Tracks 1 and 2 each hold ten cars, though the first two cars on Track 1 are not accessible due to a large gap between the train and the platform.
* Tracks 3 and 4 each hold eight cars. BROOK Tower is at the east end of this platform.
* Track 5 holds six cars.
* Track 6 holds six cars, but only four cars can platform. The west end of this track is adjacent to the uptown local subway platform.

Future developments

The massive Atlantic Yards residential, commercial and sports complex (including Barclays Center) are under construction around the station and above its tracks. [http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/21/nyregion/21yards.html]

As part of the proposed Lower Manhattan-Jamaica/JFK Transportation Project, Flatbush Avenue station would switch from a terminal station to a through station for trains terminating at a proposed station in Lower Manhattan.
