Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<71-Continental Av-Forest Hills/Queens Blvd
Forest Hills - 71-Continental Av is the terminus of local service on the Queens Blvd line, trains disembark there passengers on the outbound local track before using a flying junction (that can also be reached from the express tracks) to reach a large underground area on a level below the tracks for trains in service, these tracks are where local G,R, and V trains turn around and also where the yard leads are into the Jamaica Yard.
The station itself has full length mezzanine with a relatively strange layout. There are two separate sections within fare control that are only connected by the platforms, a narrow separated area on one side of the mezzanine connects all of the exits outside of fare control as well as the three token booths, with three separate turnstile areas as well as HEETs and High Exit Turnstiles in various places that are closer to the staircases up to the street and also used when the two part time booths are closed. The three places with staircases and token booths are at 71st Avenue and Queens Blvd near the eastern end of the station where the full time booth is, an exit to 108 Street and 71st Avenue in the center of the station, this exit is where the within fare control portion of the mezzanine is separated, and towards the western end by 70th Road and Queens Blvd.
The platforms have lime green painted columns, with a light, lime green border along the platform walls.
