Overview

Opened: 4/24/1937

Two side platforms, four tracks. This station was renamed from Van Wyck Blvd. to avoid confusion with the Jamaica/Van Wyck Station on the Jamaica Center branch. Tile stripe is gold with a black border, with the pattern reversed on the name tablet. There is no free crossover due to center fare control in the mezzanine. After this station, the 179th St. line and Jamaica Center line diverge, with four tracks to 179th St. and two new tracks between the local and express trains diverging to Jamaica Center.
