Overview

Opened: 11/12/1904

Two tracks and two narrow side platforms. There are mosaics similar to those at 145th Street, except the color scheme tends more to brown and green rather than blue and grey. Again, there is a mix of styles - the original cartouches are like those at 79th Street and 91st Street with the two opposing triangles, and there is also 30's style tile where the platforms were extended. The ceiling is also rather low at one end of the station.
