Located at 87-69 Lefferts Blvd, Richmond Hill, it really bears a similarity to some of the spartan postwar freight stations built by the railroad as concrete structures in Queens and Brooklyn (such as Blissville, Ridgewood, Glendale - Atlas Terminal and others as well as the postwar Bethpage and West Hempstead passenger stations) and is located right at the Richmond Hill freight team track (active by NYA). Currently a breakfast/grill/deli joint called "Snack Time Grill". NYC property records have building owner as the LIRR and after speaking to the owner/manager he confirmed it is indeed a railroad building, making it the freight station from the newly built 1960's team track.

The team sidings were originally aligned to the north towards the Jamaica Avenue intersection (see above Emery 10/1958 map), relocated to their southwest present location (and old freight house demolished) when the Key Food market was built 1961. (see above right LIRR 1966 map) The #2 Westinghouse Electric warehouse on the 1958 map (#1 on 1966 track map) is currently: Day-Night Plumbing & Heating at 87-71 Lefferts Blvd.  Research: Kevin Wong

This bare-bones wooden structure served as the Ronkonkoma depot/ticket office after the former wooden depot burned in 1934 and until the new brick structure was opened in September, 1937. In this 1940 eastward view, both the temporary station and the new, replacement station are visible and the station name sign is still hanging on the temporary depot. Research/Archive: Dave Keller
