Overview

Opened: 4/14/1916

Local stop with two tracks and one island platforms. 86th Street station was planned to be an express station. The plan for conversion had the present platform acting as the downtown local and express and new works to the east would contain the uptown tracks and platform. The trackside walls were once tiled, but went without tile for many years; new tile was installed 2010-2011. There is a closed tower on the extreme north end of the island platform, which is now used for storage.

Exits are at the north end and the center. The 85th St. exit has a part-time token booth and a high exit; while the main exit at 86th St. has a crossover and full-time booth. At the north end there are some closed stairways.

This station served as a temporary terminal from 1916 to 1925.

Exit here for bus service to Staten Island and the main Bay Ridge shopping district.
