East Rockaway is a railroad station serving the Long Beach Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. It is located at Atlantic and Ocean Avenues in East Rockaway, New York.

The station was established in 1880. However, the original station house has not existed since either 1942 or 1951. Like the nearby Centre Avenue station, it is little more than some ground-level platforms with some shelters, and a ticket vending kiosk. It is also wheelchair-accessible for the handicapped. Unlike the Centre Avenue and Oceanside stations, there are direct connections to MTA Long Island Bus routes at the stop.
