Overview

Opened: 4/9/1936

Utica Avenue. Four tracks, two island platforms. Tile color is maroon with a Tuscan red border. The station has been renovated. There are new old-fashioned light fixtures with modern sodium-vapor lamps in them. They are suspended on long rods from the high, vaulted ceilings. There is a free crossover. The center of the station slopes down and there is a lowered ceiling compared to the rest of the station.

Running diagonally across the ceiling in the center of the station is an unused station shell intended for use as part of the IND second system. This station would have been a typical express station with four tracks and two island platforms. Stairways to them have been removed, but evidence can be seen on the ceilings of the Fulton line platforms. Also, climbing the steps to the intermediate level, there are some locked doors which could serve as access to the unfinished platforms. There are additional exits at the extreme ends of each platform which bypass the intermediate level and go straight to the fare control level.
