Overview

Opened: 5/15/1940

The design here is similar to Morris Park, with a station house at the north end, canopies along the platform, and short concrete walls at the south end. The canopy walls have a similar cityscape design as well. The fare control is over the tracks at street level on the north end. There is an extra closed exit from the northbound platform's north end apparently leading to the fare control but no evidence was found upstairs for this stairway, leading to a theory of a high exit in the "second mezzanine". This station has three tracks, with the northbound express track having been removed.
