Typical local station with two side platforms surrounding four tracks. There are "store window"-style art displays on the southbound platform and a newsstand on the northbound side. There is no crossover between uptown and downtown within the fare-paid area. The station was fully renovated in the mid-1990s. On the street level there is a kiosk reminiscent of the original IRT kiosks, although this one was installed during the station's renovation.

The mosaic bands and panels were kept during the renovation, which saw the original wall tile replaced. There are "Franklin Street" large mosaics, small "F" mosaics and directional mosaics "To Franklin St." and "To North Moore St." The tile floor features rose colored highlights.
