Rockaway Boulevard is a major road in the New York City borough of Queens. It begins as an undivided road at Eldert Lane, a small one-way street that runs along the border between Queens and Brooklyn. West of Atlantic Avenue, it is a two-lane road. When it crosses Atlantic Avenue, it widens to four lanes.

Rockaway Boulevard generally runs east-southeast. It crosses (I-678) and the Belt Parkway. Just south of the parkway, the Queens segment of the Nassau Expressway (NY 878) ends at Rockaway Boulevard, in a Y-shaped, at-grade junction. Rockaway Boulevard becomes a six-lane divided road at this point and continues southeast to the Queens-Nassau border, where it splits. One branch leads to Rockaway Turnpike (Nassau County Route 257), and the other leads to the southern part of NY 878.

Transportation[edit]

The Rockaway Boulevard station (A train) of the New York City Subway serves the boulevard at the intersection of Cross Bay, Rockaway, and Woodhaven Boulevards. In addition, the Q6 and Q7 buses run along parts of the boulevard. [1][2]
