Elevated, with a large mezzanine at the north end (Woodhaven Blvd./Cross Bay Blvd.) and a smaller mezzanine at the south end. A crossunder is at each mezzanine.

This station is popular with railfans for its view of the junction to the Rockaways. Looking east, there is a short stretch of four tracks: the center two descend and go on to Rockaway, and the outer pair go on to Lefferts Boulevard. A new center track appears on the elevated structure to Lefferts Boulevard after the junction.
