Brooklyn Manor was a station on the Long Island Rail Road's Rockaway Beach branch in New York City, located at Jamaica Avenue and 100th Street in Richmond Hill, Queens. The elevated station was constructed from wood—unusual for the Rockaway Beach branch, as most other stations were made of concrete. The station was named after a nearby movie theater.

The station was built on January 9, 1911 as a replacement for the former Brooklyn Hills Station built in 1882. It was demolished following its 1962 closure; however, much track and signal infrastructure remains, though it is quite dilapidated. Access to the area is limited, although Queens Community Board 9 has proposed to redevelop the right-of-way into a greenway bike path. Signal towers can still be seen on the path to Brooklyn Manor. Much of the roadbed is overgrown with trees and weeds. Barely anything remains of the site of the station today.
