Times Plaza is the historical name for the intersection of Flatbush Avenue, Fourth Avenue, and Atlantic Avenue in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The area came to be called Times Plaza for the nearby offices of the Brooklyn Daily Times.[1] The US Post office located at 542 Atlantic Avenue is still called the Times Plaza Station.

It sits on the borders of the Park Slope, Fort Greene, and Boerum Hill neighborhoods in Brooklyn. It is a short distance down Flatbush Avenue from the Grand Army Plaza.
