Bellerose is a station along the Main Line of the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) that strictly serves the Hempstead Branch of the railroad. The station is located on Commonwealth Boulevard and Superior Road, 0.25 miles (0 km) South of Jericho Turnpike, in Bellerose, New York, and has a Full Service Ticket Machine located on the north side of the station, next to the underpass entrance and a Daily Machine located on the south side of the station next to the underpass entrance. The station serves residents of both Bellerose, New York in Nassau County and in Bellerose Manor in the Borough of Queens.
Although Bellerose station is located on the Hempstead Branch of the Long Island Rail Road, the Oyster Bay, Port Jefferson, Ronkonkoma, and Montauk-destined Central Branches pass right by it. Bellerose Station was originally built in 1898, and rebuilt in the Summer of 1909. It was out of service between December 12-15, 1960, and replaced with a third station between 1960 and 1961. No buses stop at the station.
This station has one eight-car-long high-level island platform adjacent to Tracks 1 and 2 of the Hempstead Branch. Two parallel Main Line tracks to the north are not adjacent to this platform, so trains to or from Ronkonkoma, Huntington or Montauk cannot stop at this station.
