Bellaire was a station stop along the Hempstead Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Originally, it was the site of a station known as Brushville in 1837 which opened along with the rest of the LIRR Main Line to Hicksville, New York. The station was razed sometime in 1871. On March 20, 1900, a new station called Interstate Park was built in the place of the old Brushville Station, although it only served the Hempstead Branch. This station was renamed "Bellaire" in 1907, rebuilt on September 20, 1924 and finally closed around 1972. Barely anything remains of the station now, except for the platform supports which are visible on both sides of the local tracks. The station was located between Hollis and Queens Village Stations.[1]
