This station opened on September 10, 1932 as part of the opening of the first city-owned subway line, the IND Eighth Avenue Line. On this date, the line opened from Chambers Street north to 207th Street.[1][6] Construction of the whole line cost $191,200,000. While the IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line already provided parallel service, the new Eighth Avenue subway via Central Park West and Frederick Douglass Boulevard provided an alternative route.[7]

Under the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Plan, the station, along with thirty other New York City Subway stations, underwent a complete overhaul as part of the Enhanced Station Initiative. Updates included cellular service, Wi-Fi, interactive service advisories and maps.[8][9] A request for proposals for the 72nd Street, 86th Street, Cathedral Parkway–110th Street, and 163rd Street–Amsterdam Avenue stations was issued on June 1, 2017,[10] and the New York City Transit and Bus Committee officially recommended that the MTA Board award the $111 million contract to ECCO III Enterprises in October 2017.[11] As part of the renovations, the station was closed from April 9, 2018 to September 2, 2018.[12] The southbound platform opened first, on September 2, followed by the northbound platform on September 4.[13]

This underground station has four tracks and two side platforms. The platforms have no trim line, but the name tablets read "110TH STREET CATHEDRAL P'KWAY." on white lettering in two lines. They are written on a dark blue background and black border. Black I-beam columns run at regular intervals with alternating ones having the standard black station name plate in white lettering. Toward the southern end of the station, the northbound express track descends below the other three tracks of the Eighth Avenue Line.

At the south end of the station, two staircases from each platform go up to a mezzanine above the tracks that allows a free transfer between directions.

The artwork at the station, installed in 1999, is called Migrations by Christopher Wynter in memory of Athie L. Wynter. It has three different areas of mosaic panels, two on each platform and one on the full-time mezzanine.[14] As part of the 2018 renovation, this artwork was expanded.[13][15]


This station's full-time entrance/exit is at the south end, serving 109th Street. From the mezzanine above the tracks, a turnstile bank provides entrance/exit from the system. Outside of fare control, there is a token booth and two staircases to the street. The southbound platform has an additional same-level entrance/exit at the north end, serving 110th Street. It has a part-time bank of four turnstiles and is unstaffed.[16]

  • One stair, NW corner of Frederick Douglass Circle at 110th Street and Central Park West (southbound only; part-time)[16]
  • One stair, SW corner of Central Park West and West 109th Street (both platforms; full-time)[16]
  • One stair, east side of Central Park West at West 109th Street, within Central Park (both platforms; full-time)[16]

The northbound platform formerly had an entrance/exit to the northeast corner of Frederick Douglass Circle; this entrance corresponded to the open exit to the northwest corner of Fredrick Douglass Circle on the southbound platform and is indicated by directional "110" signs without arrows below mosaics of the station name.[14] Both platforms also had an entrance/exit at the north end to both northern corners of 111th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard; the northbound platform's entrance/exit led to the northeastern corner and the southbound platform's entrance/exit leading to the northwestern corner. All these exits have been sealed up with white tiling and used as employee-only spaces.[14]
