5. 9th Avenue

9th Avenue abandoned subway station

The 9th Avenue station in Sunset Park, Brooklyn opened in 1916. Upper tracks carried cars on the West End Line while lower tracks were used by the Culver Line so that the station accommodated both elevated and subway trains. Service through this station stopped track by track, with all tracks eventually shuttering in 1975. Though not as popular as the abandoned Bowery Station in Manhattan, the old 9th Avenue stop has been used as a filming location for a handful of projects including Crocodile Dundee in 1986, the Joker in 2019, and In the Heights in 2021.
