This open-cut station opened on June 22, 1915. It has four tracks and two side platforms, but the two center express tracks are not normally used. The northbound platform has metal canopies while the southbound platform has concrete walls and roof.
At this point, the LIRR Bay Ridge Branch runs alongside north of the line.
From January 18, 2016 to May 22, 2017, the Manhattan-bound platform at this station was closed for renovations. The Coney Island-bound platforms closed on July 31, 2017, with an expected reopening in Spring 2019.
Each end has a crossover. The full-time west exit leads to Fort Hamilton Parkway and 62nd Street while the HEET east exit leads to 11th Avenue and 62nd–63rd Streets. The distance between 11th Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway makes the platforms much longer than a typical "B" Division train. The station house's construction is stucco with tile interior.
