Beach 60th Street, sometimes called Beach 60th Street – Straiton Avenue, is a station on the IND Rockaway Line of the New York City Subway. Located in Queens on the Rockaway Freeway at Beach 60th Street, it is served by the A train at all times.
Beach 60th Street – Straiton Avenue was originally built by the Long Island Rail Road along the Rockaway Beach Branch as Straiton Avenue, also known as Arverne – Straiton Avenue in 1892 as part of a quarrel between the LIRR and a developer over the original Arverne Station on Gaston Avenue. It also served as a trolley stop of the Ocean Electric Railway. Like all stations along the Rockaway Beach Branch, the station was rebuilt as an elevated station on April 10, 1942, then transferred to the New York City Transit Authority on October 3, 1955 and reopened as a subway station on June 28, 1956.
