Station layout[edit]

The station is located on a street running segment of the "E" Branch; trains run in mixed traffic rather than a dedicated median. The station has no platforms; riders wait on the sidewalks (shared with bus stops for the route 39 and 66 buses) and cross the street to reach trains. Because of this, the station is not handicapped accessible.
