Overview

Opened: 10/29/1989

Two levels, one side platform and one track on each level. Queens-bound trains use the lower level (approx. 100 feet below street level), and Manhattan-bound trains use the upper level (approx. 80 feet below street level). Behind the platform wall on each level is a second track intended for future connection to the proposed Second Ave. subway line. The platform walls features orange tile laid vertically. From the upper level platform there are three long escalators and intermediate levels before we reach the fare control. All of the intermediate levels feature soaring high ceiling design. At the south end of the fare control are two very long escalators to the lowest intermediate level. This station has full elevator access to all platforms and the street. From here, the 63rd St. tunnel line splits and has access to the 6th Ave. IND, as well as the BMT Broadway line. It is possible that some future service from 63rd St./Queens Boulevard might use the Broadway Line instead of the 6th Avenue line.
