Overview

Opened: 8/19/1933

Two levels, two tracks and one island platform on each level. The lower level serves "uptown" trains from both the 8th Avenue and 6th Avenue subway lines (that is, both trains are heading north to the Bronx or Queens) but they travel in opposite directions. The same holds true for the upper level, which serves trains heading downtown to either the 8th Avenue or 6th Avenue subway, but the trains are traveling in opposite directions along 53rd St. The northernmost track on each level is used by 8th Avenue service while the 6th Avenue trains use the southernmost track. This station is fairly deep, approximately 30 feet below street level (upper platform). Three flights of stairs are necessary to reach the fare control. Tile color is purple with black border and has no name tablet as such. What passes for a name tablet is a medium sized "7th Avenue" mosaic. The 7th Ave. end of the station features a round tube design. The Broadway BMT line passes directly overhead near the western end of the station which can be seen by different ceiling and column styles.
