Woodhaven Boulevard is a station on the BMT Jamaica Line of the New York City Subway, located in Woodhaven, Queens. It is served by the J train at all times and the Z train during rush hours in the peak direction.

This elevated station opened on May 28, 1917,[1] and has two tracks and two side platforms with space for a center track. Both platforms have beige windscreens and brown canopies with green roofs along the entire length except for a section at the west (railroad south) end. Here, there are only waist-high black steel fences.

This station has two entrances/exits, both of which are elevated station houses beneath the tracks that allow free transfers between directions. The main one is at the extreme west end and has a single staircase from each platform, turnstile bank, token booth, and two street stairs going down to either western corners of Woodhaven Boulevard and Jamaica Avenue.

The other station house is un-staffed, containing just two HEET turnstiles, a staircase to each platform, and one staircase going down to the southwest corner of 95th Street and Jamaica Avenue. The Queens-bound staircase's landing has an exit-only turnstile that allows passengers to exit the station without having to go through the station house.

The 1990 artwork here is called Five Points of Observation by Kathleen McCarthy. It affords a view of the street from the platforms and resembles a face when seen from the street. This artwork is also located on four other BMT Jamaica Line stations.
