Nostrand Avenue is an elevated station on the Long Island Rail Road's Atlantic Branch in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn in New York City. Trains leave every 12–15 minutes during peak hours and 30 minutes during off peak hours until 11 p.m.
The station resembles a typical elevated New York City Subway station and has white on black signage as found on the subway. Though originally built in 1877, the current elevated station was built between 1903 and 1905.
The station has two tracks and two six-car-long side platforms above Atlantic Avenue. The north platform, adjacent to Track 1, is generally used for westbound trains to Atlantic Terminal. The south platform, adjacent to Track 2, is generally used by eastbound trains to Long Island.
A street stair is at either extreme ends of both platforms. The western stairs go down to either eastern corner of Nostrand Avenue while the eastern stairs go down to either western corner of New York Avenue. A ticket booth and two daily ticket machines are located at the Nostrand Avenue end of the eastbound platform.
