The Long Island Railroad train went off the tracks as it arrived at the busy Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn. The New York’s fire department said 103 people had reportedly suffered “non-life-threatening” injuries.
Some of the injured were taken away on stretchers, while others were seen sitting near the train holding ice packs to their heads.
Passengers on the train said there had been a loud bang followed by a jolt that made some people on the train fall down.
The cause of the accident, which happened at about 08:20 local time (13:20 GMT), has not been determined.
Last September, a woman died and more than 100 other people were injured when a train derailed during rush hour as it entered the station in Hoboken, New Jersey. An investigation into that incident is yet to be concluded.
The US Federal Railroad Administration said its investigators were heading to the scene.
