Layout

It is a three track, two island platform station, completely renovated between 1999 and 2000, with ADA-compliant access added.Mosaic tiles read "MAIN STREET"; small tiles along the platforms read "M". The original street exit is in the middle of the platforms with a separate fare control mezzanine above the tracks. The new fare control area at the east end has an extremely high ceiling, approximately 40 feet (12 m) below the street level, and provides an elevator, three escalators, and a stairway to street level at Lippman Plaza. New artwork has been installed over the row of turnstiles.

There are two entrances at street level. The main entrance is located in the center of the platforms and leads to the station service mezzanine with a 24-hour station agent's booth. Exiting west from the station on Roosevelt Avenue and Main Street will take you to the Flushing Chinatown. The 2010 passenger count for this station was 18,630,490 – making it the 10th busiest station complex system-wide and busiest outside of Manhattan.[1]

The new Lippmann Plaza entrance opened in 1999 and is located at the far east end of the station, beyond the bumper blocks at end of the tracks. Prior to 1999, the tracks went past where the current bumper blocks are, to a dead-end. The new entrance has stairs, an escalator, and an ADA-accessible elevator. Flushing–Main Street Station has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2004.[2]

At the west end of the station platforms are the offices and dispatch tower for the Flushing Line. This is where the trains are dispatched, crews report, and the line is controlled from.
