36th Avenue (also known as 36th Avenue – Washington Avenue) is a local station on the BMT Astoria Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of 36th Avenue and 31st Street, it is served by the N train at all times, as well as by the W train on weekdays.


Station layout

This elevated station opened on February 1, 1917, 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 three tracks and two side platforms. The center track is not used in revenue service, but it had been used regularly as recently as 2002.

Both platforms have beige windscreens that run along the entire length except for a small section on the Astoria-bound platform at the north end. Red canopies with green frames are at the center.

Under the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Plan, the station, along with thirty other New York City Subway stations, will undergo a complete overhaul and would be entirely closed for up to 6 months. Updates would include cellular service, Wi-Fi, charging stations, improved signage, and improved station lighting.


The station's only entrance is via an elevated station-house beneath the tracks. It contains two staircases to each platform, a waiting area covered with transite that allows free transfer between directions, turnstile bank, token booth, and three street stairs going down to all corners of 36th Avenue and 31st Street except the northeast one.
