174th Street is a local station on the IRT White Plains Road Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of 174th Street, Southern Boulevard & Boston Road in the Crotona Park East section of the Bronx, it is served by the 2 train at all times, and the 5 train at all other times except during late nights and rush hours in the peak direction.


Station layout

This elevated station, which has two side platforms and three tracks, is built on a curve, which results in large gaps between center doors and the platform. The gaps were almost wide enough to need gap fillers. By 2008, most of the station's gaps had been filled, but train announcements still warn passengers to "be careful of the gap between the platform and the train."

The station was closed from July to November 2003 and was completely rehabilitated so it has a new white windscreen and black fencing. The ends of the platform are very narrow.


The station does not have a mezzanine. The station houses are at the same level as the platforms. The two southbound exits lead to the northwestern corner of the skewed intersection of 174th Street and Southern Boulevard. The two northbound exits are on either eastern corner of that intersection.
