glad you posted these, Peter. But I am surprised you did not include the old architectural elements they've added to the first level, where the token booth is.
Eastern Parkway was the first-ever Parkway in the US, I do believe.
See ya on the 2!

At 3 AM in March 1999 after a party around the corner my girlfriend at the time barfed in this station when we were waiting for a train. I always liked this station. It was the last normal one before things got scary. Back in 1998/1999 this area was not like it is today.

Flashback to 1972 and riding the subway to Bishop McDonnell High School on Eastern Parkway.

Thanks for the memories!

Thank you for these photos. They evoke memories of when I lived there and this was my subway stop. I love Brooklyn, NY; Eastern Parkway, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

Thank you, I rode the subway when the lines were known as the IRT or BMT. I lived at 135 Eastern Parkway and attended PS 241

The apartment building where we lived was directly across the street from the Brooklyn Museum.(175 eastern Parkway) My father was the "Super" from 1952-1965. We moved in February 1966. I remember that train station only too well. Thanks for the pics.

I paid a few visits to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden within the past two years, and the look of the Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum station really impressed me. The improvements do the station justice, although a short walk through other nearby parts of neighborhood show much work still needs to be done. The original(?) tile stations signs are equivalent to a time machine, in that they can make you feel you are back in 1965 (or earlier). They are also marvelous to view up close, representing the past in the present.

While I missed the old wrought iron gates of the old BBG, the new look is quite nice, and the garden itself appears to have changed little. It is still a quiet oasis in the middle of the EP thoroughfare - provided you can ignore the jets overhead...
