This elevated station has three tracks and two side platforms. The center track is not used in regular service. It resembles other elevated stations along the line, with wood mezzanines and no windscreens along the platform edges.

The station is located north of the Castle Hill neighborhood, and the street that the station is named for leads to that neighborhood.

From October 5, 2013 to May 4, 2014, the station was closed for rehabilitation work.[3]


The station's only exit is a mezzanine beneath the tracks. Outside fare control, stairs lead to the northeast and southwest corners of Westchester Avenue and Castle Hill Avenue.[4]
