Broadway

Broadway is a station in the Flushing neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, on the Long Island Rail Road's Port Washington Branch. The station is part of CityTicket. The station is east of an overpass at the intersection of 162nd Street and Northern Boulevard and is 11.1 miles (17.9 km) from Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. Renovation in 2008 added wheelchair ramps.

Originally built in 1866 by the New York and Flushing Railroad, Broadway Station was named for Broadway, the old name used for the section of Northern Boulevard(NY 25A) passing through Flushing and Auburndale. By the 1930s the street name changed to avoid confusion with another Broadway located in western Queens, but the station name remained the same.

Platforms and tracks

The station has two high-level side platforms. The north platform next to Track 1 is 10 cars long and is generally used by westbound or Manhattan-bound trains. The south platform next to Track 2 is 10 cars long and is generally used by eastbound or Nassau County-bound trains. The Port Washington Branch has two tracks here.
