Overview

Opened: 5/30/1920

Two island platforms and three tracks. A couple of 1950s style mushroom shaped lights are at the end of the platforms. An interesting feature is covered exits from platform to the middle level featuring a crossunder and windows in a simulated 12-pane pattern similar to those at Whitlock Ave. The fare control is at street level, a large area, which features a painting entitled Live The Dream. There is an escalator from the fare control to the southbound platform, bypassing the mezzanine. The southbound platform has an old tower at the south end. This station is massive and similar to the Queens Boulevard stations on the #7 Flushing line.
