Overview

Opened: 3/3/1917

Three tracks and two island platforms (express configuration), on the upper level which serves the White Plains Road Line. There are two trackways and a disused island platform on the lower level which formerly served the 3rd Avenue Elevated Line. The lower level has been abandoned since the termination of El service in 1973. The lower level mezzanine is visible behind a gated area. Down one more level to the street is the main station house. North of the station is a junction between the two levels, with the lower level trackways rising in between the outer tracks and inner express track, (making a five track/trackway line for a short distance: from west to east, they were as follows: main southbound, 3rd Ave. southbound, main center, 3rd Ave. northbound, main northbound). Old signs on the lower level are still visible from the windows of downtown trains arriving into the upper level station. Renovated in 2005.
