Overview

Opened: 3/3/1917

North of East 180th Street on the main line is Dual Contracts construction. All of the Dual Contract stations to White Plains Road have crossunders. At Bronx Park East there are three tracks and two side platforms. Old signs are located at the center exit stairs and have been painted over, but the signs on the southbound platform are bleeding through the paint. Covered windows in the concrete wall are also present. The tile mezzanine has windows and standard "Uptown" and "Downtown" mosaics. The mezzanine itself is made of stucco over concrete and is massive. The station resembles those on the Queens Boulevard portion of the Flushing line. To the east is a view of the Dyre Avenue line. Renovated in 2005.
