Originally under the name "Flatbush Avenue", Atlantic Terminal is the primary terminal for Hempstead, West Hempstead, and Far Rockaway trains. It also has the occasional Jamaica shuttle as well as service to some other LIRR branches (Babylon, Long Beach, Ronkonkoma, Huntington/Port Jefferson). Only electric trains stop here, as diesel trains do not fit into the tunnels leading into this station.
It was originally built in 1877 as an old late 1800's looking building, renovated in 1907, demolished in 1988, and ultimately rebuilt and renovated from 2008-2010. I'm glad the old building was demolished. Why? Well, this is my second favorite station on the LIRR. I love the underground part as it gives me AirTrain JFK vibes as well as a little bit of a 2000's MTA Architecture vibe. Even though this station has it's features which make it beautiful, like the skylight, the tile, as well as the 2000's MTA architecture, it can't top Jamaica.
