Overview

Opened: 3/16/1906

Three tracks and two island platforms. No station house in the northbound direction. Northbound entrance is via Metrocard High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles only. No crossover or crossunder.

The stations at 207th St., 215th St., 225th St. and 231st St. feature a common cast concrete artwork entitled Elevated Nature, created in 1991 by artist Wopo Holup.

From here you can see the 207th Street Yard of the subway system to the eastern side. A track connection leads from the IRT elevated structure to the yard just north of the station. The shop building runs alongside the elevated structure all the way to 215th Street.
