Vernon Blvd-Jackson Av

Vernon Blvd-Jackson Av

Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue is the westernmost stop in Queens before entering Manhattan via the Steinway Tunnel, which was heavily damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Though informally known as Vernon-Jackson, riders shouldn’t be fooled. This station is not quite located at the intersection of Vernon Boulevard and Jackson Avenue, but rather on 50th Avenue between Vernon Boulevard and Jackson Avenue, both of which have entrances to the station (Wikipedia).
