Overview

Opened: 3/11/1920

Two tracks, two wall platforms. Mosaics for 7th Avenue and the numeral 7 are found. A full mezzanine exists over the station but it is half-blocked off. A closed exit near the center of the platform leads into the closed portion of the mezzanine. A free crossover is provided at the north exit via the mezzanine. From the open portion of the mezzanine, you can observe where the closed section is grilled off. On the platform, the narrow space between the two sets of exit stairways is also grilled off, apparently as a crime-control measure. At the far north end of the inbound side platform, there is a break in the tunnel wall where one can view IRT trains in the parallel IRT Brooklyn Line tunnel.
