Flushing–Main Street is the northern terminal station on the IRT Flushing Line of the New York City Subway, located at Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue in Flushing. It is a three track, two platform station, completely renovated between 1999 and 2000, and ADA-compliant access has been added. Mosaic tiles read "MAIN STREET"; small tiles along the platforms read "M". The original street exit is in the middle of the platforms with a separate fare control mezzanine above the tracks. The new fare control area at the east end has an extremely high ceiling, approximately 40 feet (12 m) below the street level, and provides an elevator, three escalators, and a stairway to street level at Lippman Plaza. New [http://www.nycsubway.org/perl/artwork?115 artwork] has been installed over the row of turnstiles.

There are two entrances at street level. The main entrance is located in the centre of the platforms and leads the station service mezzanine with a 24-hour station agent's booth.

The new Lippmann Plaza entrance opened in 1999 and is located at the far east end of the station, beyond the end of the tracks at the bumper blocks. Prior to 1999, the tracks went past where the current bumper blocks are to make a dead-end. The new entrance has stairs, an escalator, and an ADA-accessible elevator. This station is one of the three on the IRT Flushing Line that is accessible to the disabled. Flushing–Main Street Station has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2004.

At the west end of the station platforms are the offices and dispatch tower for the Flushing Line. This is where the trains are dispatched, crews report, and the line is controlled from.
