This elevated station, opened on September 15, 1916, has three tracks and two side platforms. The center express track is not normally used. The Manhattan-bound platform has a full beige windscreen and brown canopies with green frames and support columns in the center. The Coney Island-bound platform has a beige windscreen and brown canopies with green frames and support columns in the center and high mesh fences at either ends. The station signs are in the standard black plates with white lettering.

In 2012, the station was rehabilitated with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.[3]


The station has two fare control areas, both of which are elevated station houses beneath the platforms and tracks. The full-time one is at the south end. A single staircase from each platform go down to a waiting area/crossunder, where a turnstile bank provides access to/from the system. Outside fare control, there is a token booth and two staircases going down to either northern corners of New Utrecht Avenue and 79th Street.[4]

The station's other fare control area towards the north end is un-staffed. A single staircase from each platform goes down to a landing around a now-closed station house. A single full height turnstile provides access to/from the station before another staircase goes down to either southern corners of New Utrecht Avenue and 77th Street.[4]
