Overview

Opened: 3/3/1917

Three tracks and two side platforms. The platforms have windscreen along most of their outside edges, only the south end escapes. The mezzanine is built like the one at Bronx Park East. A view over the south end railings reveal the station originally had low concrete walls and windows, here again bearing resemblance to the Queens Boulevard stations on the Flushing line. The station still has old lights on the platform but I expect that they will soon be gone. Evidence shows a removed old sign near the south exit to the south mezzanine. A reader of these guides wrote: To harmonize better with the wide parkway over which it was built, the entire exterior of the station was stuccoed. This included extra (possibly structurally unnecessary) supports along the sidewalks (in addition to the plain steel supports down the White Plains Road pavement). These stuccoed supports effectively hid the steel supporting structure from parkway strollers and motorists. Renovated in 2005.
