Morris Heights is located in a very obscure location just beyond I-87, the Major Deegan Expressway, between the highway and the Harlem River. The large low-income superblock housing development River Park Towers, and Roberto Clemente State Park on the River Side of the station surround it. Service is the base of only hourly with no express trains stopping. The station was completely rebuilt in the mid-2000s and is an island platform for the eastern two tracks of what is here a 3-track line. It has a very similar layout to its sister station University Heights one stop north and the platform can only accommodate 4 cars. The entrance is a single staircase and an elevator at the southern end of the platform. These lead up to the northern sidewalk of Tremont Avenue. They connect to the station's grey canopy that stretches from here to over halfway down the platform. There is a single Daily Tickets TVM in an old-style bus shelter adjacent to the station entrance on the sidewalk.
