State Sen. Malcolm Smith, Long Island Railroad President Helena Williams and Assemblywoman Barbara Clark cut the ribbon on Oct. 30 as the LIRR unveiled massive renovations, restorations and improvements to its Queens Village station.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said Queens Village has been an LIRR stop since 1881, though the current station was built in 1924, bottom left.

Upgrades to the station as it exists today include elevators to both east- and westbound platforms; new lighting and security cameras; new signs and new railings at the platform level.

The waiting room has been renovated, and the entire building received fresh coats of paint.

Welcome to the discussion.
