Overview

Opened: 1/1/1936

Four tracks and two island platforms. Tile is white with blue stripe and black border. There are slate blue accent tiles at regular intervals. The fare control is up 21 steps from the mezzanine. There is a crossover between directions via the mezzanine. South of this station the line divides into two branches to Brooklyn: via tunnel to the IND lines and via bridge to the BMT lines.

There has long been a transfer to the downtown local train of the IRT East Side's Bleecker Street station, via a glass-walled passageway. In 2012, a transfer opened to the uptown local platform, along with new stairway, escalators, and elevators.
