The former 18th Police Precinct Station House and Stable of the Brooklyn Police Department is a historic police station and stable located in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. The two buildings were completed in 1892. The station house, which later was used by the New York City Police Department's 68th Precinct, is a three story brick building with carved stone detailing in the Romanesque Revival style. It features a projecting corner tower and Norman-inspired projecting main entrance portico. The stable is a two story brick building connected to the station house by a one story brick passage. It ceased being used as a police station in 1970,[3] and was bought by the Sunset Park School of Music.[2][4]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982,[1] and was designed a New York City landmark in 1983.[2]
