Broadway is a local station on the BMT Astoria Line, containing wooden canopies with transite and wooden mezzanines. Only the southbound platform has windscreens. The mezzanine is configured like 30th Avenue. It is served by the N train at all times, and by additional Q train on weekdays.

This elevated station opened on February 1, 1917,[2] along with the opening of the rest of the Astoria Line, as an IRT line station, and the BRT (later BMT) also provided joint service. This station has two side platforms and three tracks. The center track is not used in revenue service, however this has been the case in the past, as recently as 2002.
