Overview

Opened: 6/12/1893

Two tracks, one island platform. This station has a center exit with a wood floored mezzanine. At the north end there is an area under the tracks (possibly a closed mezzanine), now office space for the TA. The portion of the el from Pennsylania Avenue (3 blocks east of Alabama Avenue) to Van Siclen is unrebuilt, mostly cast iron el structure dating back to 1885, the oldest remaining transit structure in the city. Van Siclen was the terminal of the original el; remnants of a three-track terminal/turnback portion of el is visible just east of the station. The following section, from Van Siclen to Crescent Street, dates to 1893.
