40th Street–Lowery Street is a local station on the IRT Flushing Line of the New York City Subway. It is served by the 7 local train at all times.



The Flushing Line was opened from Queensboro Plaza to 103rd Street – Corona Plaza on April 21, 1917, with a local station at 40h Street.

The platforms at 40th Street were extended in 1955–1956 to accommodate 11-car trains.

Station layout

The station has two side platforms and three tracks. The center track is used by peak-direction <7> express trains during rush hours.

In 1998, the name "Lowery", a former name for 40th Street in 1917 at the time of construction, was removed from the station and maps, but was restored in 2004 as part of a historical move. The 1999 artwork featured at the station is called Q is for Queens by Yumi Heo.


The exit is under the tracks in the median of Queens Boulevard. The exit is at 40th Street with two stairs from each platform. Since fare control is on different sides of the exit, there is no free transfer between directions, although the station's layout could allow one.
