Sands Street was a station on the demolished BMT Myrtle Avenue Line. It was a large complex with two levels.
The upper level had a terminal and a loop for terminating trains. The Sands Street Terminal had four tracks and three island platforms and a side platform located to the east. This was to the west of the loop tracks and platforms.
The Sands Street Loop had platforms on High Street (one island and two wall with two tracks) and on Sands Street (also two tracks and one island and two wall platforms).
