Broadway is a local station on the BMT Astoria Line of the New York City Subway. Located above 31st Street at Broadway in Astoria, Queens, it is served by the N train at all times, as well as by the W train on weekdays.

History[edit]

On February 1, 1917, this station opened along with the rest of the Astoria, providing rapid transit service to Astoria for the first time. The line opened as an IRT line, with the BRT (later BMT) providing joint service.[3] On October 17, 1949, the Astoria Line became BMT-only, and its platforms were shaved back to allow through BMT trains to operate on it.[4]

This station has two side platforms and three tracks. The center track is not used in revenue service, but it had been used regularly as recently as 2002.[5] The station contains wooden canopies with transite and wooden mezzanines, but only the southbound platform has windscreens.[6] The station has a narrow crossover in its mezzanine that allows for passengers to change their direction of travel at the station.[7]

Station rehabilitation[edit]

Under the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Plan, this station, along with 32 others, will undergo a complete overhaul as part of the Enhanced Station Initiative. Updates would include cellular service, Wi-Fi, USB charging stations, interactive service advisories and maps, improved signage, and improved station lighting.[8][9] The award for Package 2 of the renovations, which will cover renovations at the 30th Avenue, Broadway, 36th Avenue, and 39th Avenue stations, was awarded on April 14, 2017, to Skanska USA.[10] This station, along with 39th Avenue, would be closed entirely for around 7 months starting in July 2018.[11]

Exits[edit]

The mezzanine is configured like 30th Avenue. Outside of fare control, street stairs descend to all corners of Broadway and 31st Street except the northeast one.[12][13] A temporary exit-only from the northbound platform descends to the east side of 31st Street between Broadway and 34th Avenue.[14]
