61st Street – Woodside is an express station on the IRT Flushing Line of the New York City Subway located at 61st Street and Roosevelt Avenue in Woodside, Queens.

This station has two island platforms and three tracks. The two outer tracks are used for the full-time 7 local service while the bidirectional center track is used for rush hour peak-direction <7> express service. There is a mezzanine located at the center, underneath the platforms, with a new ADA-accessible elevator to each platform.

This station is heavily used by the students of Greater New York Academy and was used for a scene in John Cassavetes' 1980 film Gloria.

Entrance and exit are provided by long stairs down to street level on the northern curb of Roosevelt Avenue at 61st Street, as well as to other nearby locations via the LIRR platforms. An ADA-compliant elevator provides access to street level at the northeast corner of 61st Street and Roosevelt Avenue, while a long escalator at the southeast corner provides entrance only. The Woodside station of the Long Island Rail Road is located directly beneath the Flushing Line station; any of the three LIRR platforms can be accessed directly from the mezzanine.

Artwork includes John Cavanagh's Commuting/Community (1986), located near the stairway down to LIRR Track 4, and Dimitri Gerakaris' Woodside Continuum (1999), which forms part of the steel-grating fare-control separation.
