174th Street is a local station on the IRT White Plains Road Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of 174th Street and Southern Boulevard in the Crotona Park East section of the Bronx, it is served by the 2 train at all times, and the 5 train at all other times except during late nights and rush hours in the peak direction.

The station is built on a curve, which results in large gaps between center doors and the platform. The gaps are almost wide enough to need gap fillers. As of April 28, 2008, most of the station's gaps have been filled, during mostly weekday constructions.

The station has two side platforms, but no lower mezzanine. The station houses are at the same level as the platforms. The station was closed from July to November 2003 and was completely rehabilitated so it looks different from every other station on the route with the new white windscreen and black fencing. The ends of the platform are very narrow.[2]
