Two side platforms, two tracks. At 100 feet below ground level, this is one of the deepest stations in the system. Between the tracks there is a low curtain wall between the two tracks with alternating niches for transit workers. There are elevators and escalators up to the fare control building at street level. The station building is a large glass-enclosed space, giving us a view of the island and the tram which is to the south of the subway station. Roosevelt Island station is very "Parisien" (a side-platform station with no center columns) and is similar to some of the deep tunnel IRT stations on the West Side.
