Overview

Opened: 7/10/1905

This station has been fully renovated and now includes elevators and platform level fare control on each of the two wall platforms. There is no crossover or crossunder. Each platform has a bus transfer booth with separate fare controls; the bus transfer was used for the connection to the Bx-55 bus which replaced the 3rd Avenue El in the Bronx. The extra booths and turnstiles, while still present, are no longer in use, having closed in July 1997 when the Metrocard Gold free transfer policy went into effect. The tile has dark red and dark green/gray lower accents and dark red upper border. Prior to the renovation, terra cotta "3" plaques were on the platform walls. One of these has been preserved at the Transit Museum.
