Beach 44th Street, sometimes referred as Beach 44th Street – Frank Avenue, is a station on the IND Rockaway Line of the New York City Subway. It is served by the A train at all times. This station has no closed exits, and the full time fare control is at the middle of the platforms.
Beach 44th Street – Frank Avenue was originally a trolley stop of the Ocean Electric Railway, which used a former segment of the Long Island Rail Road's Far Rockaway Branch tracks, until it became a Long Island Railroad Station in 1922. The station was relocated 758 feet east of its former location between August 2 and August 23, 1940 as part of a grade crossing elimination project between Beach 44th Street and Beach 47th Street. It was reopened on April 10, 1942 but transferred over to the New York City Transit Authority on October 3, 1955, along with the rest of the Rockaway Beach Branch and Far Rockaway Branch west of Far Rockaway, and reopened as a subway station along the IND Rockaway Line on June 28, 1956.
