161 Street-Yankee Stadium


B,D (The Concourse Subway) has two side platforms and 3 tracks, it is a local stop and bypassed by the <D> Concourse Express (I am sure that many Yankee fans end up at Tremont Avenue not realizing that this line existed), there are two part time high entrance/exits at either end of the platform and a very large mezzanine for the large Yankee crowds, there is also a transit police station in the station. The station is fully wheelchair accessible with 5 elevators (including an accessible transfer to the 4). The station was recently renovated (The old station use to have large blue '161's on the platform walls). The Station is decorated by Art's For transit with Vito Acconci (Acconci Studio) Wall-Slide, 2002 because of this the tile 'reverses' colors when on the wall of a staircase. (Yellow base with white trim).

4 is on the Jerome Avenue elevated, it curves and exits the tunnel from 149 Street-Grand Concourse near the station. The station has side platforms over three tracks and would be a local stop. There is a medium-size mezzanine that has been re-habilitated that has the escalators/staircase bank that leads down to the D subway. There is a special very large compacity game days only entrance/exit to Yankee Stadium.
