Metropolitan Avenue was a station on the demolished section of the BMT Jamaica Line. It had 2 tracks and 2 side platforms, with space for a 3rd track in the center. This station was built as part of the Dual Contracts[citation needed]. It opened December 12, 1916, and closed on April 15, 1985. The next stop to the north was Queens Boulevard. The next stop to the south was 121st Street. Metropolitan Avenue was closed because the rest of the Jamaica Line was connected to the Archer Avenue Subway.

Both Metropolitan Avenue and Queens Boulevard stations were demolished in late 1990.
