It resembles other elevated stations along the line, with wood mezzanines and no windscreens along the platform edges.

From October 5, 2013 to May 4, 2014, the station was closed for rehabilitation work.[3]

ExitsEdit

The station's only exit is a mezzanine beneath the tracks. Outside fare control, stairs lead to the northeast and southwest corners of Westchester Avenue and Castle Hill Avenue.[4]
