Station layout

The 135th Street station opened on September 10, 1932. It is the only local station with six tracks between two side platforms and is one of only three stations in the entire subway system that features six tracks on the same level, within the same tunnel (the others are DeKalb Avenue and Hoyt–Schermerhorn Streets, both in Downtown Brooklyn). The two outermost tracks are used by local trains stopping at this station, while the two innermost tracks are used by express trains. The middle tracks in each direction are lay-up tracks and not used in revenue service.

In this station, all fare controls are at platform level and there are no mezzanines, crossovers, or crossunders.

Exits

The full-time booths are at the 135th Street end, and the part-time end of the station is at 137th Street. The booth at the 137th Street exit has been removed. There were restrooms at the 137th Street end of the southbound platform. Both street staircases at this end were built with their entry points facing St. Nicholas Park and have an old-fashioned appearance.
