The Dyckman-Hillside Substation, also known as Substation 17, is an historic electrical substation located at 127-129 Hillside Avenue between Sickles Street and Nagle Avenue, near the Dyckman Street station of the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line, in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It was one of eight substations constructed by the Interborough Rapid Transit Company in 1904-05.

The substation is a two story, free-standing masonry building in the Beaux-Arts style. It features hipped roof, tower-like projections, scrolled wrought iron brackets, and terra cotta decorative details.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
