Haberman was a station along the Long Island Rail Road's Lower Montauk Branch that was located at the intersection of Rust Street and 50th Street in Maspeth, Queens.[1] The station is named after the Haberman Steel Enamel Works in Berlin Village.[1] Haberman opened as a station for the convenience of workmen in September 1892; service was furnished by the Long Island City-East New York Rapid Transit trains. There never was a station building.[1] The station still had manual railroad crossing gates and a guard shack as recently as 1973. The station was closed on March 16, 1998 along with Penny Bridge, Fresh Pond, Glendale and Richmond Hill Stations.[2]

On some maps Haberman mistakenly figures as the name of a neighborhood.[3]
