I used that station for 20 years from 1955 to 1077. What you say about Brownsville developing in the 1890s is true, but the area within a quarter mile of the station on the Brownsville side and over a mile on the East Flatbush side was developed in the 1920s and started immediately after the station was constructed. There was a lot of block busting in the 1970s and the neighborhood completely changed in three years. This is about the third murder I remember hearing about at this station. Of course there were
many more robberies and violent attacks.
