Overview

Opened: 8/19/1933

21st Street-Van Alst. This station has forest green tile with no name tablet, simple "21" captions (no mention of "Van Alst") and one center island platform. The station at one time had a full mezzanine but the north half of the mezzanine is now closed by railings and plywood. Center exits and a south exit have also been closed. There are three removed stairways. A spring of mineral-water can be seen bubbling through the tile on the southbound track side; there is also standing water in closed-off parts of the mezzanine. A train route selector panel was observed at the south end of the southbound track.
