Queens Village is a station located on the four track LIRR Main Line, although for all intensive purposes is part of the Hempstead Branch because all but one westbound AM peak train that serves the station originates or terminates in Hempstead. The stop is located on an embankment and has two side platforms for the 4 track line located alongside the main commercial district of the neighborhood of Queens Village (it is the last stop in Queens eastbound). The New York platform has a decent sized concrete two-story structure with some non public uses on the ground level and a small waiting room (open 5am to 2:00pm), there are also some exterior bench portions of the platform canopied by the station house (which provides the only canopy for either platform). Access up to this platform is via a staircase inside the station house. On the outside of it is a small bus loop. To reach the Hempstead-bound platform passengers must use Springfield Blvd's underpass to a single small staircase along the western sidewalk, up to a completely open narrow side platform. Just beyond this side platform is a 5th track that only freight trains appear to use and is unelectrified. For parking there is a city owned Muni-meter lot just west of the station.
