Willets Point

Willets Point (formerly Willets Point – Shea Stadium) is an express station on the IRT Flushing Line of the New York City Subway. It is served by the 7 train at all times and by the <7> train rush hours in the peak direction or towards Manhattan following most New York Mets baseball games and U.S. Open tennis matches. This station is located in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in Willets Point, Queens. The original Willets Point Boulevard station opened on May 7, 1927.[9] At that time, it was located at the intersection of Willets Point Boulevard, 126th Street, and Roosevelt Avenue and was a minor, local stop on the Flushing Line, with only two stairways and short station canopies at platform level. At the announcement that the 1939 World's Fair would be held in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, the station was moved west to its current location, converted into a large express station, and rebuilt to handle the expected crowds.
