Dyckman Street is a station on the IND Eighth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway, located at the intersection of Dyckman Street and Broadway in Inwood, within northern Manhattan. It is served by the A train at all times.
There are four tracks and two side platforms, giving the impression that this is a local station. The two center tracks lead to the 207th Street Yard. They merge with the two outer tracks south of this station and there are crossovers and switches between all four tracks to the north. Some northbound A trains terminate here before being taken out of service to the yard by switching to the center tracks north of this station.
Both platform walls have no trim line and the name tablets read "DYCKMAN – 200TH ST." in white sans serif lettering on a maroon background and black border. Small "200" wall signs in white numbering on a black background and yellow i-beam columns run along both platforms at regular intervals. Every other column has a black station name plate reading "Dyckman Street" in white lettering.
Each platform has one same-level fare control area and there is a crossunder inside fare control. The southbound platform has the full-time turnstile bank and token booth. There are four street stairs here, two of which are built inside buildings and go up to the northwest corner of Broadway and Dyckman Street. The other two go up to the northwest corner of Broadway and Riverside Drive on the north end of Fort Tryon Park.
Since there is only one more station in the northbound direction, that platform's fare control is exit only, containing just full height turnstiles and three staircases, two of which go up to the northeast corner of Broadway and Dyckman Street and the other to the southeast corner.
