Gillibrand secures $1 million in federal funding for Forest Hills LIRR station


Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced Wednesday that she secured $1 million in funding for repairs at the Forest Hills Long Island Rail Road station, one of the oldest stations in the city. The funding was allocated as part of the historic bipartisan omnibus appropriations agreement for fiscal year 2022.

The project will address repairs needed at the station including replacement of deteriorated platforms and helping to make the station more ADA accessible. Due to the historic design of the station, New York’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will be consulted for the design improvements.
