33rd Street – Rawson Street is a local station on the IRT Flushing Line of the New York City Subway. It is located over Queens Boulevard on a concrete viaduct. It is served by the 7 train at all times.

The full-time exit is at 33rd Street and while the part-time exit is at 34th Street. The part-time exit has a crossunder to allow free transfers between opposite directions while the full-time one does not, even though it has the layouts that could allow one.

In 1998, the name "Rawson" was removed from the station signs and subway maps, but restored in 2004 as part of a historical move.
