Jamaica MTA Subway Station & LIRR Terminal
Continued. Summer 2016 / Jamaica Neighborhood / Manhattan Hotels / Gotham Buzz. As mentioned in the introduction, the Jamaica Train Station in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens is the busiest transportation hub in Queens and all of Long Island.
The Jamaica railway and subway station serves as the main hub for outgoing and incoming Long Island Railroad [LIRR] trains to and from all points on Long Island - save the Port Washington line. At the Jamaica station, passengers must invariably switch trains prior to ending up in Penn Station in NYC.
Changes are afoot for Long Island Railway passengers, as there is a major construction project underway to enable passengers to get off on the east side of Manhattan at Grand Central Station, in lieu of ending up on the west side of Manhattan at Penn Station [where things currently stand].
