The station has extensive mosaics featuring Harlem history and famous African-Americans. It was fully renovated as part of the 1998 Lenox Avenue subway reconstruction project. Fare control is at platform level. There are no crossovers or crossunders between the two side platforms to allow free transfer between directions. The reconstruction project gave this station all new wall tile and restored the "116" terra cotta wall cartouches as well as to combat a major water seepage problem along the Lenox Avenue Line.

The artworks here are Harlem Timeline (Willie Birch, 1995) and Minton's Playhouse/Movers and Shakers (Vincent Smith, 1999).
