Coney Island - Stillwell Avenue (also known as Coney Island Terminal) is a major rapid transit station in Coney Island, Brooklyn, serving as the terminal for four New York City Subway services. It is the world's largest above-ground terminal facility, and notable as the most energy-efficient mass transit facility in the United States. Beginning in late 2001, Coney Island Terminal was entirely reconstructed. The former steel and concrete station, badly corroded by the effects of salt water and poor maintenance, was replaced with a new infrastructure, including a soaring roof with arches reminiscent of classic European train sheds. The roof is glazed with photovoltaic (solar electric) panels, consisting of 2,800 thin-film modules from SCHOTT (Germany) and covering a surface of 76,000 square feet (7,100 m2). It is the largest renewable-energy enabled mass transit station in the United States.
