Overview

Opened: 5/15/1940

Two side platforms along four tracks (center two disused). The north end of the station is in a short tunnel under the cross streets and station house. The south end is open to the sky with no windscreens and a short concrete wall along the sides. The walls along the canopy have a cityscape pattern. The station house is built in a southwestern style with rounded clay tiling on the roof and beige paint reminiscent of adobe. There is a crossover between directions and a small fare control area, with doors to the street. The mezzanine has arched windows and heaters. The booth is surrounded by red grillwork which is locked during overnight hours. At that time entry is via "iron maiden" turnstiles. From here to Dyre Ave. you can see the concrete bases which once held catenary towers at various points.
