Hollis is a station on the Long Island Rail Road's Main Line at the intersection of 193rd Street and Woodhull Avenue in Hollis, Queens, New York City, United States. Only trains to/from the Hempstead Branch stop here.
The station was originally built as East Jamaica in May 1885 and renamed Hollis in September of the same year. It was rebuilt as part of a grade elimination project in 1915. The station house was destroyed by arson on November 2, 1967 and a new one was built in the early 1990s.
This station has two high-level side platforms, each four cars long. The north platform, next to Track 3, is generally used by westbound or New York City-bound trains. The south platform, next to Track 4, is generally used by eastbound trains.
The Main Line has four tracks here. The two middle tracks, not next to either platform, are used by through trains. A fifth track south of the south platform leads to the east end of the Hillside Facility.
