Beverley Road

The neighborhood of Beverley road is one of the oldest populated areas in all of Brooklyn. The original train station was constructed in 1907 along the BMT line. In the early nineteenth century the area was populated by a combination of Italian and Polish immigrants, as evidence points to Roman Catholic churches in the neighborhood.  The area retains its Catholic churches, however most of the patrons now are of West Indian decent. The neighborhood itself is primarily residential, but has a commercial distract running adjacent to Flatbush Avenue. This station has a lot to offer even though it’s so close to Cortelyou road (600 feet, the closest of any train station in the New York Subway System).  Watch our video, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Beverley Road.
