Wilson Avenue Station

The BMT Canarsie Line (L train) has a station at Wilson Avenue. Since the BMT and Circumferential Line would presumably be sharing tracks at this point, Wilson Avenue would also be a stop for the Circumferential Line. Although the buildings are more commercial to the north, to the west and south there are some quiet neighborhoods.

Just north of Irving Avenue, there is a siding that branches off the Bay Ridge Line to the northwest, crossing Cooper Avenue. The siding is no longer connected to the track, but there are some vestigial rails poking through the pavement at Cooper Avenue.
