Overview

Opened: 12/20/1920

Two tracks, one center platform, two side platforms. The side platforms, no longer used, are similar to those at Woodlawn and 242nd St., and they may have been used for unloading passengers, with the center platform used for loading. At the south end is a staff-only crossover bridge between the center and west side platform. In the past it also connected to the east side platform but that portion has been removed. At the north end of the platforms are the track bumper blocks, and a crew quarters area. There is also a tower and crew quarters at the south end. The fare control is in the tile mezzanine. There are old style signs which are covered over on the main platform.
