Myrtle Avenue is an abandoned local station on the Manhattan Bridge subway tracks (B D N Q) south of the bridge in Brooklyn, New York City, United States. The station was opened in 1915, and closed in 1956 for the reconstruction of the flying junction north of DeKalb Avenue. The Brooklyn-bound platform was removed completely, but the Manhattan-bound platform still exists, and now hosts the Masstransiscope zoetrope artwork by Bill Brand. This artwork and the station can be seen by looking out the right window of Manhattan-bound B & Q trains right before the bridge.
