Overview

Opened: 10/27/1904

Local station with three tracks and two side platforms. 125th Street station is an example of the foresight of the subway's designers. Broadway at this point is in a deep valley and the transit designers had a choice of a viaduct or deep tunnel with steep grades at either end. They chose a viaduct to allow the subway to remain relatively level.

The station has a mezzanine and crossunder. The mezzanine is wood with a rubberized floor covering. There is a mosaic on the stairway landings from the platforms. The stair and platform rails are ornate and thankfully have escaped the windscreen treatment. The tunnel portals are visible north and south of the station.
