This elevated station, which opened December 29, 1916, has three tracks and two side platforms. The center express track is not normally used. This station has four stairs to the street and one from the mezzanine to each platform. It has been adopted by students of Lafayette High School as part of New York City Transit's "Adopt a Station" program.

In 2012, the station was rehabilitated with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.[2] Four laminated glass windscreens by artist Amy Cheng, commissioned by the MTA Arts for Transit Program, was installed in July 2012. The windscreens were fabricated by Depp Glass, based in Long Island City, Queens.

In popular culture

The station was pictured in the 1971 film French Connection.
