Overview

Opened: 1/2/1928

Departing Willets Point, the subway line and Roosevelt Avenue cross Flushing Creek and the Van Wyck Expressway on a double deck bridge. After crossing the bridge we descend back into a short tunnel and arrive at Main Street/Flushing, our last stop. This station has recently been renovated, with a new fare control and ADA-compliant access created at the east end of the platforms. There are two island platforms, with new "M" and "Main Street" name tablets on the track side walls. The original street exit is in the middle of the platforms with a separate fare control mezzanine above the tracks. The new fare control area at the east end has an extremely high ceiling, approximately 40 feet below the street level, and provides an elevator, three escalators, and a stairway to street level at Lippman Plaza. New artwork is installed over the row of turnstiles.
