This station was the terminal of the White Plains Road line when the station opened on March 31, 1917.[6]

This station has three tracks and two side platforms. At the north end of the station, the northbound track ascends to pass over yard leads, while the others descend. A three-story tower is located north of the station which has an old blue and white letter sign "Warning — Do not lean over edge of Platform." North of this tower, two tracks enter the line from the 239th Street Yard.[7]

The 2006 artwork here is called Leaf of Life by Noel Copeland.[8][9]

Exits

This station has one elevated station house beneath the center of the platforms and tracks. Two staircases from each platform go down to a waiting area. Outside fare control, two staircases go down to the northwest and southeast corners of Nereid Avenue and White Plains Road.[10]
