Humboldt-Hospital Station is a Buffalo Metro Rail station located at the western terminus of Kensington Avenue and Main Street in the City of Buffalo, New York. To not confuse, Kensington Avenue rejoins Main Street again in Williamsville (Town of Amherst, NY) on its eastern terminus.
This is the only station with entrances on both sides of the Main Street for passengers to enter and exit from.
The area near the station is a mix of housing, medical offices, anchored by the Sisters of Charity Hospital.
The Parkside residential community is directly to the east of the station, and is also a short distance from Delaware Park.
Humboldt Hospital station does not offer an off-road bus loop, requiring passengers to board/debark using curbside stops.

In 1979, an art selection committee was created, composed of NFTA commissioners and Buffalo area art experts, that would judge the artwork that would be displayed in and on the properties of eight stations on the Metro Rail line.
Out of the seventy proposals submitted, twenty-two were chosen and are currently positioned inside and outside of the eight underground stations.
Humboldt-Hospital Station is home of two pieces of work in the upper level, from Sharon Gold (New York City), and Joyce Kozloff (New York City). The artwork in the form of photography on the platform level is by Milton Rogovin.
