Copiague is a station on the Babylon Branch of the Long Island Rail Road, located in Copiague, New York. The station is located on Marconi Boulevard and Great Neck Road (Suffolk County Road 47), one block north of Oak Street (Suffolk County Road 12). Copiague Station was originally built in 1902, and was rebuilt with temporary high-level platforms for the M1s on October 25th, 1968.
