Overview

Opened: 10/29/1989

Two tracks, two side platforms. There is a low crossover at the eastern end of the platform which gives us a view of the trains. The walls are brown brick with no mosaics. Past 21st Street-Queensbridge the line joins the Queens Boulevard subway.

Departing 21st Street-Queensbridge westbound, the train enters the 63rd St. tunnel, which is unlike anything else on the subway. The construction ranges from high arch ceiling covering both tracks; single arch; and deep-bore tunnel. There is a lot of space along the sides of the tracks in certain places, and at the Manhattan side, the turnouts for The Second Avenue Subway connection are clearly visible.
