Overview

Opened: 6/28/1956 Closed: 4/28/2011

One platform on the east side of the four track main line. This station was used only on racing days for spectators traveling to the adjacent Aqueduct Racetrack. In the early days of IND Rockaway service, special trains were operated, typically from the lower level at 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal, which ran express to the racetrack for a special fare. The special trains would cross over and wrong rail to terminate at the racetrack station. After a while this service was terminated, and the station was closed; but in 1997 the station reopened, and northbound trains would stop here to pick up passengers on race days. Between 1997 and 2011, access and egress was via the Metrocard-operated high iron maiden turnstiles. The entry/exit is at platform level and there was a ramp leading down to the street and racetrack parking lots. The station was closed once more in April, 2011. Racetrack customers can use the nearby Aqueduct-North Conduit Avenue station instead.
