182nd–183rd Streets is a local station on the IND Concourse Line of the New York City Subway. It is served by D train at all times except rush hours in the peak direction and the B train during rush hours.

History[edit]

This station was built as part of the IND Concourse Line, which was one of the original lines of the city-owned Independent Subway System (IND).[4][5] The route of the Concourse Line was approved to Bedford Park Boulevard on June 12, 1925 by the New York City Board of Transportation.[5][6] Construction of the line began in July 1928.[7] The station opened on July 1, 1933, along with the rest of the Concourse subway.[8][9]

This underground station has three tracks and two side platforms.[10] The tile band is Claret red with a black border; the tile captions show "182" at the south end and change to "183" midway to the north end, similar to the arrangement at the 174th–175th Streets station.

Exits[edit]

The mezzanine used to be full length, but has been reduced in size. Crossovers are allowed only from the northernmost set of stairs.

The only open exits lead to all four corners of 182nd Street and Grand Concourse.[11] A gated off passageway on the north end of the mezzanine leads to a former booth and exits to all four corners of 183rd Street; the stairs have been sealed on street level. There are two additional closed exits at the south end that lead to both sides of the Grand Concourse between 181st and 182nd Strets; the stairs here have also been sealed on street level.
