Tompkinsville is a Staten Island Railway station in the neighborhood of Tompkinsville, Staten Island, New York, located at Victory Boulevard and Bay Street on the main line. It is located at grade with an island platform and two tracks, but all staircases go up for overpasses at both ends.
The north entrance leads to Victory Boulevard and Bay Street and there is a parking lot adjacent to the southbound track. The south entrance leads to Hannah Street and there is a third track adjacent to the southbound track on that side. It is part of a Maintenance of Way shop, with barns on both sides of this line and located south of this station.
Because many passengers used to exit at Tompkinsville, most likely to avoid paying the fare at St. George, the SIR installed turnstiles and a stationhouse at the Victory Boulevard entrance which opened on January 20, 2010. Customers who enter at the Victory Boulevard entrance now pay the fare. The Hannah Street entrance is used only for emergencies.
