This station features a rarity among Brooklyn subway stops: the phantom platform, a decommissioned tract of concrete once used for passenger service. Much to the horror of daily commuters, the MTA opted to use the Hoyt-Schermorhorn phantom platform as a temporary trash dump. It's been reported that the smell reaches unbearable levels in the dead of summer when the trash literally begins to cook inside the bags. UGH!!!
