Station layout

This elevated station opened on February 1, 1917, along with the opening of the rest of the Astoria Line, as an IRT line station, and the BRT (later BMT) also provided joint service. This station has two side platforms and three tracks. The center track is not used in revenue service, but it had been used regularly as recently as 2002. Both platforms are narrower at their south ends and have creme-colored windscreens for the entire lengths and wooden canopies.

Under the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Plan, the station, along with thirty other New York City Subway stations, will undergo a complete overhaul and would be entirely closed for up to 6 months. Updates would include cellular service, Wi-Fi, charging stations, improved signage, and improved station lighting.

Exits

This station's only mezzanine is an elevated wooden station house beneath the center of the platforms and tracks. It has a turnstile bank and two staircases for each platform. A crossunder is behind the token booth on the north side. A passageway on each side behind the platform stairs leads to a staircase going down to either southern corners of 31st Street and 30th Avenue. Two staircases on the other side go down to the northern corners.
