Also: Far Rockaway (1958)
Flushing Main Street (1958) - street level depot recently demolished
West Hempstead (1959)
Douglaston (1962)
Willets Point (1963 - built for World's Fair)
At that Far Rockaway is no longer in use. No water or gas service, and the gates are welded shut.
When was the ticket office closed?
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.
