A head-scratcher at the 65th Street station on the IND Queens Boulevard line (R and M trains) has a modern sign showing the exit at Rowan Street and Broadway.
65th Street hasn’t been known by that name since the 1920s, when most Queens streets were grouped under one numbering system. Early IND signs, installed in the 1930s, included “Rowan Street”signs for the benefit of old timers who still called it Rowan Street. But there’s no excuse for it now, except for figuring in sheer obliviousness.
