Overview

Opened: 5/15/1940

Two tracks and a single island platform. In the NYW&B era this station had four tracks and two side platforms. The current arrangement has the northbound "local" track and southbound "express" track in use, with the island platform over the northbound "express" trackway. The southbound "local" trackway is clearly visible at a bridge over the street. North of the station the tracks continue a short distance to the bump block. A tower is over the south end. Remnants of the original side platform are visible midway along the center platform. The fare control is at street level, 37 steps down from the platform, at the south end.
