4 Avenue is a major north/south route in Brooklyn. It begins at the Belt Parkway near the Verrazano Bridge and runs north. It ends at Flatbush Avenue, one block north of Atlantic Avenue. The entire length is a four- to six-lane road, and most of it is divided. It is part of a series of numbered avenues in Brooklyn that increases numerically from west to east. 4 Avenue is the largest of Brooklyn's numbered avenues and the only one with oversized street name signage along its entire length.
