Canal Street (LIRR station)
New York Army National Guard's 104th Field Artillery Armory building, site of the former Canal Street Station.
|Address||168th Street South of 93rd Avenue,
|Opened||June 24, 1890|
The station opened on June 24, 1890, when the local Atlantic Avenue rapid transit trains were extended from Woodhaven Junction through Jamaica to Rockaway Junction, their new terminal. The station was closed in 1899, soon after the "rapid transit" trains started running to the Brooklyn Bridge. Seventeen years later, Brooklyn–Manhattan Transit Corporation opened 168th Street Station on the Jamaica Elevated Line as a replacement, which existed until 1977. The vicinity of the station is now occupied by the 104th Field Artillery Armory building of the New York Army National Guard, which was built in 1933.
