Overview

Opened: 9/10/1932

Two tracks, two side platforms. This is one of the deepest stations in the system, approximately 140 feet down, well under Fort Tryon Park. The line at this point was built as a deep-bore tunnel and the walls have the curved tunnel bore look, as opposed to the typical IND cut-and-cover look. The tile colors are like those at Dyckman St. On the northbound side there is a big name tablet reading "190-Overlook Ter.", but the matching one on the southbound side has been painted over.

There is a small mezzanine with the fare control gates above the center of the platform. There are "Uptown" and "Downtown" directional mosaics in the mezzanine, and the south end affords a view of the tracks.


There are two exits from the 190th Street/Overlook Terrace station, neither of which leads to 190th Street or Overlook Terrace. One exit is via elevators to Fort Washington Avenue at Cabrini Boulevard and the Margaret Corbin Circle entrance to Fort Tryon Park. The elevators are still manually operated by an attendant. The other exit is a long downward-sloping corridor out to Bennett Avenue between 192nd Street and Broadway.
