IND Subway Queens Branch: 71st Avenue Station – Forest Hills NY

Description

The Queens Branch of New York City’s Independent Subway (IND) was extended during the 1930s with the aid of federal Public Works Administration (PWA) funds. On December 31, 1936, eight new IND subway stations opened in Queens and the line was extended from its mid-1933 Roosevelt Avenue terminus in Jackson Heights out to Kew Gardens. The Forest Hills – 71st Avenue station was one of the eight to open at this time.
