Overview

Opened: 6/22/1917


8th Street is next, also a local station, recently renovated. The 1970s renovation tiles were removed revealing the original mosaic name tablets. There is an additional exit (with iron maiden) at Waverley Place on the south end of the platforms. Also at the south end is evidence of a closed crossunder passage between the platforms. There is a newsstand on each platform near the fare control. New mosaic artworks have been installed all over the renovated tile walls.
