Ocean City 34th Street Station, was located in Ocean City, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. The station — a small wooden shelter with bench seating for a few passengers, located just south of 34th Street next to a rail line running down the middle of Haven Avenue — was built in 1885 by the Ocean City Railroad, which was acquired by the Atlantic City Railroad in 1901, and later by the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines. Trains last served the station in August 1981, when service was cancelled due to poor track conditions and limited funding from the New Jersey Department of Transportation.[3]

The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 22, 1984.[4] It was subsequently damaged beyond repair when a truck backed into it, and thus demolished.
