Brentwood Station, on the Ronkonkoma Branch, serves approximately 2,900 customers each weekday. The station building has been completely rehabilitated and modernized and is ADA-compliant, with new amenities, including: benches, digital information totems, trash cans, USB charging stations and Wi-Fi. The sidewalks outside the station have been improved, a new ADA-compliant ramp has been installed and the pedestrian overpass has been refreshed.

Armando Mariño’s artwork, “The Guardian Angel” (2018), is inspired by the historic development of Brentwood and its present as a community. Featuring richly colored flowers from the country of origin of many of Brentwood’s residents, such as Mexican Dahlias, Peruvian qantu, and Salvadorean Flor de Izote, as well as native flowers of Long Island. A guardian owl representing Brentwood’s idyllic past protects the garden.
