Auburndale is a station on the Long Island Rail Road's Port Washington Branch in the Auburndale neighborhood of Queens, New York City. The station is part of CityTicket. The station is on 192nd Street between Station Road and 39th Avenue, three blocks north of Northern Boulevard and is 11.7 miles (18.8 km) from Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan.
