This elevated station, opened on March 16, 1919, has two side platforms and three tracks with the center one not normally used. Both platforms have beige windscreens and brown canopies with green frames in the center and waist-high black steel fences at either ends. The station signs are in the standard black with white helvetica font.

From June 7, 2016, to May 1, 2017, the southbound platform at this station was closed for renovations.[3][4] The Manhattan-bound platform was closed for a longer period of time, from May 22, 2017 until July 30, 2018.[5][6]

Exits[edit]

This station's only entrance is an elevated station house beneath the tracks. It has two staircases to each platform at their centers, waiting area, turnstile bank, token booth, and three street stairs. Two of those stairs go down to either northwest corner of McDonald Avenue and Bay Parkway (the southern one is longer since it goes down to the diagonal street of Bay Parkway) while the third goes down to the southeast corner. Both station house balconies have emergency exit doors between the platform stairs and street stairs.[7]
