The tile band is Claret red and the name mosaics are replicas of the 1933 originals. The I-beams have been painted a shade of red to match. Tile bands are also present in the mezzanines, and matching "T" (for Tremont) plaques have been fitted—the only IND station to feature these. A closed tower sits on the south end of the Manhattan-bound platform.

The 2000 artwork here is called Uptown New York by Frank Leslie Hampton. It uses a mixture of glass and marble mosaics to create a full width display of a Bronx apartment building with a rooftop garden, and clothes hanging out on a line to dry on a cloudy day. This mural is as wide as the mezzanine and faces the full-time booth area.

In 2019, the MTA announced that this station would become ADA-accessible as part of the agency's 2020–2024 Capital Program.[4]


The station had a full length mezzanine above the platforms. However, after a 1999 renovation, it was split into three sections. The northernmost and southernmost portions are separate fare control areas, and the central portion is now used as a storage area; there is one staircase at the center of each platform that lead up to this space.

The full-time booth is in the southern portion. It has three street stairs leading to the all but the southeast corner of Grand Concourse and Echo Place, and two stairs to each platform. The street stair on the west side has a small passageway. The part-time side at the northern portion. It had its booth removed during the aforementioned renovation, has two street stairs, one to each side of the Concourse at 179th Street, and has two stairs to each platform.[5]
