In the 19th century, Inwood and the LIRR station located within it were named "Westville." The name of the community was changed to "Inwood" on February 25, 1889, and the station followed suit. Between December 3, 1911 and 1956, the station only had sheltered-sheds.
Inwood station currently exists as little more than two high-level sheltered side platforms, both of which run beneath the underpass for the Nassau Expressway. It is the penultimate station on the Far Rockaway Branch, and the last one in Nassau County before the line re-enters New York City.
This station has two high-level side platforms, each six cars long.
