40th Street – Lowery Street is a local station on the IRT Flushing Line of the New York City Subway. It has one center exit/entrance with dual fare control and therefore, no free transfer directions, although the station's layout could allow one. It is served by the 7 train at all times.

In 1998, the name "Lowery", a former name for 40th Street in 1917 at the time of construction,[2] was removed from the station and maps, but was restored in 2004 as part of a historical move. The 1999 artwork featured at the station is called Q is for Queens by Yumi Heo.
