Eastchester – Dyre Avenue is the northern terminal station of the IRT Dyre Avenue Line of the New York City Subway, at Dyre Avenue and East 233rd Street in the Bronx neighborhood of Eastchester. It is served by the 5 train at all times.
Opened on May 29, 1912 as a local station of the New York, Westchester and Boston Railway, it closed on December 12, 1937 when the NYW&B went bankrupt. In 1940, New York City purchased the right of way from the Bronx / Westchester County boundary southward. In 1941, a shuttle service was implemented between Dyre Avenue and East 180th Street using IRT gate cars. In 1957, a physical connection was made to the IRT White Plains Road Line, and through service provided.
When the station was rebuilt for subway service the two side platforms were removed, with a small piece of the northbound remaining. The four tracks were converted to two tracks using the northbound local and southbound express tracks. An island platform was placed over the northbound express trackbed. The NYW&B's southbound local trackbed can still be seen. The two tracks extend one train length past the station, and end at bumper blocks.
The northern end of the station is on an embankment, while the southern end is elevated. Mount Vernon, NY (3/10 of a mile) is a short uphill walk from the station.
