Allerton Avenue is a local station on the IRT White Plains Road Line of the New York City Subway. Located in the shopping district of Allerton, Bronx at Allerton Avenue and White Plains Road, it is served by the 2 train at all times, and the 5 train during rush hours in the peak direction.

This elevated station, opened on March 3, 1917 and renovated in early 2005, has three tracks and two side platforms.

Both platforms have beige windscreens and red canopies with green outlines, frames, and support columns in the center and black, waist-high steel fences at either ends with lampposts at regular intervals. The windscreens have mesh fences at various points. The station signs are in the standard black name plates with white lettering.

This station has one elevated station house beneath the center of the platforms and tracks. Two staircases from each platform go down a waiting area. The back of the token booth faces this crossunder with a steel fences on either side. On the Wakefield-bound side, there are two exit only turnstiles. On the Manhattan-bound side, there is an emergency gate and a bank of three turnstiles. Outside fare control, two staircases go down to the northwest and southeast corners of Allerton Avenue and White Plains Road. The station house has windows.

The 2006 artwork here is called Allerton Mandalas by Michele Brody. It consists of stained glass panels on the platform windscreens featuring twisting colors of red and green (representing the trunk lines of the 2 and 5 trains).
