Overview

Opened: 6/11/1917

Two tracks, one unused center trackway, two side platforms. The dual names indicate the cross streets at the locations of the north and south exits. At present, only the northern exit at 75th St. remains. (The current map shows the name as 75th Street while station signs show both names, 75th St./Elderts Lane. Through 1966, this was known solely as Elderts Lane. Presumably, changes to the mezzanine configuration caused the station name changes.) There are doors to the fare control area which has a concrete floor and orange and cyan stripes on the walls and doors.
