Overview

Opened: 12/10/1950

This terminal station has four tracks and two island platforms. There is beige wall tile with blue and orange color stripes. In an unusual feature the two colors alternate in a sine-wave pattern with each being on top before curving underneath the other color. The full mezzanine with crossover features comic superhero plywood cutouts "holding up the ceiling" of the station. The south end of southbound platform features a tower. North of this station there are eight storage tracks, four on each of two levels, which continue as far as 184th Street.
