Two side platforms alongside a right-of-way wide enough for four tracks, but only two are in use. The right-of-way narrows at the south end of the station down to two tracks to cross Jamaica Bay. This station was extensively rebuilt in the 2000s in conjunction with the construction of the JFK Airtrain station on the eastern side. The mezzanine level is glass enclosed and contains a crossover and the fare control.


Raised relief painted mural on the northbound platform entitled On Beaches of Harmony Bay (no date). This mural features fish with human heads.
