is the northern terminal station
on the BMT Astoria Line
of the New York City Subway
. Located at Ditmars Boulevard and 31st Street in the Queens
neighborhood of Astoria
, it is served by the train (all times), and by the train (weekdays).
This station has two tracks and an island platform, partially located under the New York Connecting Railroad (NYCR). The platform canopy extends to the portion of the platform under the NYCR. The mezzanine has twin fare controls, with double-wide staircases. There is a pedestrian bridge to the second floor of the adjacent Garry Building. A view from the platform reveals a painted mural on the east wall of the bridge entitled Americana.
Opened on July 19, 1917 as an IRT line station, the BRT (later BMT) also provided joint service. In 1949 the joint service was discontinued, leaving the BMT to provide full-time service.
