Van Siclen Avenue is a local station on the IND Fulton Street Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Van Siclen and Pitkin Avenues in Brooklyn, it is served by the C train at all times except nights, when the A train takes over service.

There is a crossover and a single double wide stairway to the mezzanine. There are no ads in the station.

This station was an unfinished shell during World War II that couldn't be finished because of material shortages from the war effort. This meant the station got a sightly different tile job and design for the mezzanine compared to the rest of the local stations along the line.
