The IRT level opened along with the original subway in 1904. The station has two side platforms and two tracks. The fare control is at platform level. The station has a new name tablet plus some old "125" terra cotta cartouches. The tracks, trackways, and platforms at this station were totally rebuilt during a 1998 reconstruction project to combat a water seepage problem along the Lenox Avenue Line.

The 1996 artwork there is Flying Home Harlem Heroes and Heroines, by Faith Ringgold.

On May 23, 1968, poet Henry Dumas was fatally shot by a New York City Transit Police officer on the station's southbound platform.

In 1981, the MTA listed the station among the 69 most deteriorated stations in the subway system.

The IND level is three levels below street level, or one levels below the IRT Lenox Avenue Line. The station has a three-track, two side platform layout with a mezzanine above it. The middle track is not normally used for revenue service, instead being used for train storage. The station opened on May 1st, 1995.
