Three tracks and two side platforms. There are typical Dual Contracts frieze and numeral "143" mosaics along the tops of the platform walls, and full name tablet mosaics at intervals. The exits and fare control are at platform level at the center of the station. There is no available crossover or crossunder between platforms. A closed, tiled over newsstand was on the inbound platform. The area around East 143rd Street Station is generally industrial.
