Overview

Opened: 11/26/1904

We now ascend to elevated structure for the trip to East 180th St. This is the longest section of elevated built under IRT Contract I. Rising to the El level you can still see the shortened supports for the Third Avenue El line which was once above us.

All stations before East 180th St. have two wall platforms and three tracks; the center track is used for service diversions and the peak direction express service. All of the stations have ornamental designs on the railings and stairs. With the exception of 177th St. and Intervale Ave., none have crossunders.

At Jackson Avenue, the station has a short canopy at the station house only. Fare control is on the southbound side only with iron maiden turnstiles on the northbound side. There are old signs, now covered up, and a closed station house on the north side, which has old plywood walls and floors. The station has escaped the windscreen treatment common at other elevated stations. The southbound has doors from the stationhouse to the street and a partially removed old token booth overlooking the southbound platform.
