145th Street is a bi-level express station on the IND Eighth Avenue and Concourse Lines of the New York City Subway, located at the intersection of 145th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue in Harlem and Hamilton Heights, Manhattan. It is served by the A and D trains at all times, by the C train at all times except late nights, and by the B train on weekdays only.


Upper level platform
Lower level platform

This underground station opened on September 10, 1932, as part of the initial segment of the Independent Subway System, at the time comprising what is now the IND Eighth Avenue Line from Chambers Street to 207th Street.[1][5] At this time, only the upper level of the station opened, as the IND Concourse Line was still under construction. When the IND Concourse Line opened for service on July 1, 1933,[6] the lower level was opened.[7]

The station has been undergoing renovations since 2017 as a part of the 2010–2014 MTA Capital Program. This is because of an MTA study conducted in 2015, which found that 45% of components were out of date.[8]

Upper level
Lower level

The upper level has four tracks and two island platforms. The band is gold with black border. The station had a full mezzanine, although the central portion is now used as a police precinct. The lower level has three tracks and two island platforms. The tile border here is gold with black and the name tablets are black with gold border. The northbound platform is twice as wide as the station's other three similarly-sized platforms, being 39 feet wide, so that the three trackways on the lower level line up directly with those above.[7] Escalators lead up from this level to the mezzanine, bypassing the upper-level platforms.

The center track on the lower level is used to terminate B trains during middays and late evenings, when it does not run into the Bronx. During rush hours, this track is used by D trains that run express on the IND Concourse Line in the peak direction. This track is not used during late nights or weekends.[9][10][11]

On the upper level, just north of the station, there is an open space next to the uptown local track [12] that was a remnant of the construction of the subway and not built for a specific purpose. That open space is where the lower level tracks turn off to the IND Concourse Line. There is a hole in the floor that allows a view of the lower level.

South of this station, through 135th Street, to just north of 125th Street, the line has six tracks. The express trains use the innermost pair of tracks, and the locals uses the outermost tracks. This section of the line is nicknamed “Homeball Alley” due to the large amount of switches and signals in this area.[13]


The full-time entrance is at 145th Street with a part-time north exit at 147th Street.[14]
