The station has a two track, one island platform layout like the IND Second Avenue line stations. The station has air-cooling systems to make it at least 10 °F (6 °C) cooler than other subway stations during the summer. This requires the station to have large ventilation and ancillary buildings, rather than traditional subway grates. The station is also compliant with current fire codes, whereas most existing stations are not. Additionally, the station is waterproofed with concrete liners and fully drained.
The station opened March 1, 1998.
All entrances are on the southwest corner of Lafayette Avenue and White Plains Road, comprising of one elevator and two staircases.
