Inwood is the last station in Nassau County on the Far Rockaway Branch before it reenters Queens to the Far Rockaway terminus. It has two side platforms for the two track line that can accommodate 6 cars nestled beneath the Overpass Bridge of Nassau Expressway, NY-878, a wide Boulevard with traffic lights. The station lacks a building and the platforms lack any further amenities for waiting passengers (waiting under the overpass does offer protection from the elements) except for a single green shelter. The simple low-level platforms begin at the grade crossing of Doughty Blvd with the bumper blocks of the two tracks of the tiny Far Rockaway Yard visible opposite the platforms. Here are decent sized parking lots. The north one along the Far Rockaway-bound platform is free and unrestricted. The south lot requires a Village of Lawrence Residency permit. Here a ramp and two staircases lead up to each platform with two TVMs inside a shelter along the Jamaica-bound platform. A sidewalk runs parallel to each platform at ground level also beneath the underpass (and is used by residents to get under the Nassau Expressway and reach houses on the otherside). The only pedestrian crossing is the car grade crossing but the Jamaica-bound end of the platforms each have a single staircase down to the sidewalk parrellel to them. These sidewalks lead down to what is now separate sections of Lord Avenue, I assume the station once had a second grade crossing. The single street from the Far Rockaway-bound paltform has two names (according to Google Maps) Pearsall Avenue and Lord Avenue while the New York-bound platform leads to Lord Avenue just north of Cumberland Place.
