Inwood–207th Street (formerly Washington Heights–207th Street) is the northern terminal station of the IND Eighth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of 207th Street and Broadway in the Manhattan neighborhood of Inwood, near Inwood Hill Park, it is served by the A train at all times.
This underground station opened as Washington Heights–207th Street and was one of 28 stations opened on September 10, 1932. It served as the northern terminus of the Eighth Avenue Line south to Chambers Street/Hudson Terminal.
This station was renovated in the late 1990s, and the contract for the project's design was awarded in May 1994.:C-28–C-30

There is a single island platform between the two tracks, which are designated as Tracks A3 and A4, and end at bumper blocks just north of the platform at Chaining Station 1541+00. To the immediate south is an interlocking made up of a diamond crossover that allows trains to get to the correct track, and then proceed to share the right of way with the 207th Street Yard leads to Dyckman Street, which is the next station south. This station terminal has been refurbished with two ADA-accessible elevators added. The mezzanine and street elevator shaft includes artwork titled At the Start...At Long Last by Sheila Levrant de Bretteville. The terminal is operated by a Dispatcher's Office at the south end, while the Interlocking Plant is controlled by the CTC located in the 207th Street Yard.
There is also a closed exit that led to the northwest corner of 207th Street and Broadway. This stair was located inside a building and had been closed after it was severely damaged after a fire. Several turns were required to access the staircase, creating poor sight-lines. In June 1994, the MTA Board approved a plan to permanently close the entrance, allowing the passageway to be sealed with brick-and-mortar at either end. At this point, the entrance had been closed for several years. It was estimated that the entrance would have been used by 400 daily passengers. A public meeting was held on May 1994, along with proposed station access changes at other stations. The elevator entrance is located near this old staircase.
