Three tracks, two side platforms. The north end of the station has a canopy over the platform, and there is some windscreening along the outsides of the platform. The mezzanine is wood and features frosted windows in a simulated 16-pane pattern. At one time there were doors from the platform to the fare control but they have been removed; doors from fare control to street remain.

The station is adjacent to an abandoned railroad station called Westchester Avenue which was served by the New York, Westchester, and Boston Railway, and the New York, New Haven and Hartford.

This station is particularly interesting to railfans for its views to the south of trains climbing from the subway up onto the elevated structure, and to the north for a wide, sweeping curve onto the Bronx River Bridge.
