This elevated station, opened on May 30, 1893, has two side platforms on two tracks with space for a center track that was never added. Both platforms have beige windscreens and green canopies with brown roofs that run along the entire length.
The station's main entrance is at the south end. A single staircase from each platform leads to an elevated stationhouse beneath the tracks. Inside are three turnstiles and a token booth. Outside of fare control, two street stairs lead to the corners of Hemlock and Crescent Streets.
