Area Track Map

135th Street. Six tracks, two side platforms. This is only station in New York City that has six tracks passing through but is only a local station. There is a dark green tile name tablet with a black border on the side walls, but no color tile band. There is a closed old wooden token booth at the 137th St. exit. The 135th St. fare control is at platform level with no crossover.
