Station layout

This underground station has two side platforms and two tracks. The fare control is at platform level, and there is no crossover or crossunder between the platforms. The station has a new name tablet plus some old "125" terra cotta cartouches. The tracks, trackways, and platforms at this station were totally rebuilt during a 1998 reconstruction project to combat a water seepage problem along the Lenox Avenue Line.

The 1996 artwork there is Flying Home Harlem Heroes and Heroines, by Faith Ringgold.

On May 23, 1968, poet Henry Dumas was fatally shot by a New York City Transit Police officer on the station's southbound platform.

In 1981, the MTA listed the station among the 69 most deteriorated stations in the subway system.
