Long Island City is a rail terminal of the Long Island Rail Road in Long Island City, Queens. Within the City Terminal Zone and located at Borden Avenue and 2nd Street, it is the westernmost LIRR station in Queens and the end of the Main Line. The station is wheelchair accessible.

The station is served only during weekday rush hours in the peak direction (to Long Island City in the morning, from Long Island City in the evening) by diesel trains. Trains are normally run through from the Oyster Bay, Montauk, or Port Jefferson Branches via Hunterspoint Avenue. One train per direction operates via the Lower Montauk Branch.

Before the East River Tunnels were built, the Long Island City station served as the terminus for Manhattan-bound passengers from Long Island, who would then connect to a ferry to the East Side of Manhattan. The passenger ferry service was abandoned, and is now operated by New York Water Taxi.

Connections are also available to the IRT Flushing Line (7) of the New York City Subway at Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue, two blocks away, and the Q103 bus.
