Pershing Square is one of the original stations on the Red Line on its opening day segment. The station has an island platform that has a double height ceiling only visible in its midsection with two mezzanines over the rest of it for exits at their end. The ceiling has the station's main artwork form, a sculpture of neon lights, http://www.metro.net/about/art/locations/pershing-square-station/Neons for Pershing Square by by Stephen Antonakos, in honor of the first neon sign posted around the corner from the station in 1924.

The separate mezzanines taking up most of the area above the platform at either end. Each has three staircases, two with escalators, and an elevator. The southern one at the Hollywood-bound end of the platform leads through turnstiles and an elevator and staircase with an escalator on either side out to the SE corner of 5th and Hill Streets. The northern one leads out to two exits, one at the NW corner inside Angles Knool, on same block as the Angels Flight (an extremely short funicular railway), this one has two escalators with a staircase on each side out to a plaza. The NE corner leads out to a small staircase/up escalator just off the sidewalk along a parking lot.
