The Atlantic Avenue station, which opened on November 5, 1888 and closed on May 31, 1940, served the elevated BMT Fifth Avenue Line. It was located at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Flatbush Avenue, directly above what is now the Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street subway complex. The entrance building visible on the left side of the photo is still standing in the center of the intersection, though it is now unused.
