39th Avenue (sometimes called 39th Avenue – Beebe Avenue) is a local station on the BMT Astoria Line of the New York City Subway. Located at 39th Avenue and 31st Street in Long Island City, Queens, it is served by the N train at all times, and by additional Q trains on weekdays.

This elevated station, opened on July 19, 1917, has two side platforms and three tracks. The center express track is not normally used in revenue service and merges with the two outer tracks south of this station.

Both platforms have beige windscreens that run along their lengths and red canopies with green support columns in the center. The station signs are in the standard black name plate in white lettering.

This station has one elevated station house beneath the center of the platforms and tracks. Two staircases from each platform go down to a crossunder that has a news-stand and small turnstile bank. Outside fare control, there is a token booth and two staircases going down to the northwest and southeast corners of 39th Avenue and 31st Street. The lower base of the platform staircases have emergency gates leading directly to the top of the street stairs.
