Description

Centre Avenue is one of two railroad stations of the Long Island Rail Road in East Rockaway, New York. The station is officially located at Forest Avenue between Rocklyn and Centre Avenues, one block east of Atlantic Avenue, 17.8 miles (28.6 km) from Penn Station. The station can also be accessed from the intersection of Forest and Centre avenues.

History

The station was opened in 1898 by the New York and Long Beach Railroad and originally was known as South Lynbrook station until 1924. Centre Avenue station was originally located a block to the west and had a station house, but was moved east when high-level platforms were installed in the late 1960s in order to facilitate the new M1 Railcars. Parts of the original platform are still visible along the trackside towards Lynbrook. The station's parking lot is adjacent to the site of the former station.

Station layout

This station has two high-level wheelchair-accessible side platforms, each 10 cars long, with shelters and ticket vending machines. Parking is available for vehicles with East Rockaway village residential permits and is located one block west, near the site of the former station. Limited non-resident parking is also available.
