116 Street is a local stop on the Lexington Avenue Line in an area where the local tracks are above the express tracks meaning that from the side platforms of the station the express tracks are not visible but their rumble beneath can be heard. Each platforms layout is simple with no free crossover or under, just fare control areas with turnstiles (and the uptown side now unstaffed) directly in the middle on each platform each side up to a street stair on either side of 116 Street at the intersection of Lexington Avenue. The platforms near their mid-sections are wider than there ends. tsThe stop was renovated in 2004 with the green name tablets and the trimline with 116s in it restored, along with artwork along the platforms that look almost like splotches of graffiti.
