There are four tracks and two side platforms, with the express tracks in the middle, but at a lower level because of the presence of the Murray Hill Tunnel along this section of Park Avenue. The station was recently renovated, and contains eagle plaques similar to those at Brooklyn Bridge – City Hall.[when?] The plaques contain the numerals "33". Fare control is at the platform level. The station has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2004.[3]
