Beach 25th Street, also known as Beach 25th Street–Wavecrest, is a station on the IND Rockaway Line of the New York City Subway. Located in Queens on the Rockaway Freeway at Beach 25th Street, it is served by the A train at all times.
As the Rockaway Line was originally operated by the Long Island Rail Road, the platforms here were built to hold twelve-car trains (of 85 foot cars), a typical length of an LIRR train. This station is on a concrete viaduct with ballasted track. Exit is near the center to the tile mezzanine. The mezzanine is four stories high. This station was the terminal for the Far Rockaway branch until the opening of Mott Avenue station nineteen months later.
