Overview

Opened: 6/3/1917

Express station with four tracks, two side and one island platform.

Platform configuration here is unusual for an express station but identical to the platform arrangement at the 34th Street-Penn Station station on the IND 8th Avenue Line. There's a center island platform for the express trains and two side platforms for the locals. Due to the proximity of Times Square and anticipated passenger traffic, the transfer between express and local was discouraged by the layout. Entry and exit from the station is through a lower level mezzanine. The fare control is in the lower mezzanine, which also connects directly into Penn Station. Only the northbound local platform has an exit directly to the street, and there is an additional fare control area for that exit. street. Mosaics include "Pennsylvania", "To Penna RR", "to 34th St." and "to Uptown and Downtown" express trains.
