Overview

Opened: 7/17/1918


86th Street serves the surrounding neighborhood known as Yorkville, which once had a large German-American community. The area has changed and the ethnic stores are gone, but once a year, the past returns during the annual Steuben Day Parade.

The station has its fare control at platform level, with no free crossover/under provided. The station was recently renovated and mosaic artwork installed in the stairways.

Artwork

Happy City, Peter Sis (2004)
