Broadway is a station located in the Flushing neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, on the Long Island Rail Road's Port Washington Branch. The station is part of CityTicket. The station is located east of an overpass at the intersection of 162nd Street and Northern Boulevard and is 11.1 miles (17.9 km) from Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. Renovation in 2008 added wheelchair ramps.

Broadway was the old name used for the section of Northern Boulevard passing through Flushing and Auburndale. By the 1930s, the name changed in order to avoid confusion with another Broadway located in western Queens.
