Overview

IRT Station

Opened: 6/2/1917 IRT Elevated

Three tracks and two side platforms. There are extra exit stairs to handle stadium crowds at each platform. Two mosaics indicating "161st Street" are painted over at the main exit stairs on each platform. Windscreens have been installed with the side effect of preventing a good view of Yankee Stadium from the station. The station complex was renovated in 2005 which included building elevators to serve the IRT and IND lines below. Looking northward from the platforms, the tracks swing apart to allow the old 9th Ave. El tracks to join our line. A stub of the lower level 9th Ave. El trackage still exists.

IND Station

Opened: 7/1/1933 IND Subway

Three tracks, two side platforms. On the northbound side there is an extra stair from platform to street for traffic to Yankee Stadium, and an additional exit which has a sharp upturn outside the fare control. Colors are the same as 155th St. The station also features a low curtain wall separating the center express track from the local tracks. The brick on the walls is being replaced with glazed white tile, covering some but not all of the name tablets. While the color scheme remains the same, an interesting feature is found at the stairways on the northbound platform; the east walls of the stair are in the yellow accent color with the accent stripe being white.
