Overview

Opened: 9/10/1932

Two tracks, one island platform. The tracks end in bumper blocks at the north end of the station. This station has recently been renovated. In keeping with the IND tile color family pattern, the tile band is claret red in the center, but has a 15% light grey border. (No original mosaics were installed. Current mosaic tile installed in 1999 renovation. Before renovation, the old tile had no color band, just "207" captions every few feet.) This new tile is made up of pre-fabricated panels hung on aluminum laths. White grout was used, giving it a seamless appearance. There are no mosaic name tablets. The I-beams are painted cherry red. The station has a full mezzanine and vent chambers in the north section. The mezzanine wall tile now features square accents that match the new tile band below. An A.D.A.-compliant elevator is under construction at the south (207th Street) entrance.
