Overview

Opened: 1/17/1919

This is the first stop after leaving the IRT East Side Line. Two island platforms and three tracks. The center track is used for peak direction express service. This station has an unusually high ceiling and seems deeper than usual as it is fairly close to the Harlem River crossing. The only mosaic ornamentation on the trackside walls are a frieze at the top and numeral "3" tablets at intervals (in other words, no name tablets). A closed crossunder is located at the center of the platforms, but crossover is possible via the mezzanine. The northbound platform has an old tower at the south end.
