The station has two tracks and one island platform. It has wooden floors and walls. The canopy is short and has arched supports.

This elevated station was originally built on May 30, 1893 by the Brooklyn Union Elevated Railroad as the first station to be built along the Cypress Hills extension of the Lexington Avenue Elevated line, which was also shared by the Broadway Elevated east of Gates Avenue. The station has been exclusively for the Jamaica Line since 1950.


The station's only entrance and exit is a station house at the west end of the platform. Outside of fare control, a single stair goes to the southwest corner of Fulton and Cleveland Streets.[4]
