This elevated station, which opened on September 15, 1916, has three tracks and two side platforms. The center express track is not normally used. The station is situated in between two curves and platform extensions are to the north on both sides.

In 2012, the station was rehabilitated with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.[3]

ExitsEdit

There is a single mezzanine with three stairs to the street (two to the northeast corner of 18th Avenue and 85th Street, and one to the southeast corner) as well as two to each platform.[4]

In popular cultureEdit

Some exterior scenes of the 1991 Steven Seagal film Out for Justice were shot outside this station.
