103 Street is a local stop located on a portion of the Lexington Avenue line where all 4 tracks are at the same level with two side platforms. The station was renovated in 1990 and got the standard renovation of that era that didn't leave the original 1918 tiling schemes fully intact with brownish tiles now fully along the walls of both platforms blocking out the pieces of mosaic that made the green (with a brown and cream boarder) 103rd Street name tablets look like they were hanging from the brown trimline with little 103s interrupting it. The rest of these features were left intact. At the extreme front end of the platforms there is even a small section that designates it as the last portion of the platform to be extended with 1950s era lime green color band with a few 103rd Sts written in it. Both platforms are completely columnless.
For access there is a single fare control area towards the southern end of the platforms in a small mezzanine area accessed from each platform by a single staircase that leads to a short passageway. After the turnstiles there are street stairs at the base of where Lexington Avenue goes steeply up hill to the SE and SW corners of 103 Street.
