Tremont Av (6)


Tremont Avenue/Grand Concourse, is the only Concourse Subway station other than the 161 St-Yankee Stadium Complex to have a full scale rebuilding and rehabilitation. The station is an express station with narrow (for IND standards) island platform. The renovated station has maroon trim with a narrow black border on the platform walls and maroon pillars. "Tremont" is written one line under the trim in an unusual font that only seems to be duplicated at Canal Street on the 8th Avenue Line, which was renovated during a similar time period. There are two exits, one towards either end of the platform. The main entrance at the Southern end is to Tremont Avenue, there is a northern one to 179 Street. The station used to have a continuous mezzanine but the center has been closed off and split into two, each with two staircases to each respective platform. There is no evidence of it once existing in the two small mezzanines, full walls have been built. On platform level though evidence of the full length mezzanine exists with two closed staircases, one at the center of each platform, peeping up, light is visible on the closed mezzanine as well as blue pillars.
