Dukes Boulevard Station is an inactive Liberty City Subway station located on Dukes Boulevard in East Island City, Dukes, in Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes.

Description

The station is located along an LTA branch line that splits from the 3/8 Broker Line north of Huntington Street station. The stop possesses the standard twin platform station seen all over LTA's elevated train stations.

According to signs posted on the street level gates of the station, the Dukes Boulevard station is closed as it is undergoing "works maintenance" and passengers must use another station. The closure is reinforced with the presence of fences, barricades, scaffolding and maintenance equipment on the platforms and lines; in addition, no trains stop at the station.

Curiously, in the Vladimir Glebov mission "Clean Getaway", the subway train you take as part of the mission does stop at the Dukes Boulevard station. Although you never actually see the train pull up there, you spawn on the platform after the subway ride cutscene ends. There also aren't any fences, maintenance signs, or equipment at the station in this mission, so that the station seems to be in use. The station is referred to by Vlad during the opening cutscene of the game as E.I.C. Station.

In The Lost And Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony on the disc, Grand Theft Auto Episodes From Liberty City the station is there and still inactive but there are no signs giving any information about why. Also on the platform and track there are no construction materials or any sign of life.
