    What a lovely station. The two levels of elevated structure are quite spectacular. You can also take amazing photographs of approaching (7) trains from the west end of the upper level platform.

    In the cold u will freeze , the 7train comes by quickly downstairs but takes a year up stairs , as for the Q/N upstairs it comes quick and takes long down stairs Vise Versa

    Surprisingly un-crowded considering its one of the only lines into Manhattan after Sandy. I got onto the first train that arrived after I did, just before 9 on 11/2

    Trains get crowded during rush hour so be prepared. Otherwise, in less than 10 minutes you'll be in Midtown East or Astoria :)

    You do not want to be on the left side doors when the train rolls through here during rush. Stick to the right of heading to manhattan, left going into Astoria.

    A quite spectacular spot for watching (7) trains entering and leaving this double-el station is at the intersection of Queens Plaza South and 24th Street.

    Try out the cafe on the south side of Queensboro Plaza; only hip joint (to date) around the plaza.

    Be careful not to confuse Queensboro Plaza with Queens Plaza. They are right next to one another and there's no free transfer between the two and completely different train lines....

    The 7 train is here. Red light trains are express and green light ones are local. You're welcome :).

    Tip for the MTA: If its 1am and the (7) train is pulling into the station - don't have the (N) or (Q) leave as it pulls in. It's 1am the next train is in like 20 minutes. #dicks

    Look to see if the N is across the platform otw to the city. It may be more convenient to your destination, not to mention it's the most pleasant train!

    7 trains are always more frequent than the N&Q. Its set up that way, deal with it.

    If ya wanna get downtown and avoid the bedlam of times sq and grand central, get off the 7, walk across the platform and take the N

    Rule of thumb: back of the train towards Manhattan, front of the train towards Ditmars. Reverse that for nighttime. You'll always get a seat.

    Pro tip if people stand in front if you when trying to get off the trains here do what I do: Barrel right through them! That will teach them to stand in the way.

    Another wonderful weekend service fuck, 7 Train again, will not be passing Queensboro Plaza. My opinion, start pushing people in the tracks. Give them a real reason for some real track work.

    If your from the south, resist anything more than buying your way on the subway. Southern Hospitality is non existent with these workers. Small talk is not their language.

    If you have to leave early in the morning (5-6am) give yourself extra time. It never seems to run on schedule. I don't care much for the N or Q train during this time.
