On about July 1, 1871, before the extension to Far Rockaway opened, the line was leased to the Long Island Railroad. Far Rockaway–Lockwood's Grove was opened by the New York and Rockaway Railroad on May 14, 1872 with the extension of the Cedarhurst Cut-off. The section of the Cedarhurst Cut-off between Far Rockaway and Lockwood's Grove was later known as "The Grove Track".[1] The station closed in September 1877. Lockwood's Grove's original station building was moved to Syosset station in 1877 after the station was abandoned.[2] The building was renovated in 1944, but was torn down and replaced in 1948.[3]
