Overview

Opened: 4/15/1918

Three tracks and two side platforms. Due to street layout, the station building is at ground level with the tracks above the building. The Concourse Yard complex is located on the west of the station with track connections at the north end. The station has a brick mezzanine and stairway walls with "BPB" and restroom mosaics in the station house. A storeroom is located on the landing of the stairs to the platforms. A pleasant walk to the east connects us to Metro-North and the New York Botanic Garden, and to the west one can walk around the yard complex. The Concourse Yard serves as one of the few interconnections between the IRT and the BMT/IND divisions.
