This underground station opened on November 23, 1904, as part of the Interborough Rapid Transit Company's extension to 145th Street via Lenox Avenue, branching off from the original line north of 96th Street and Broadway. The White Plains Road Line opened three days later.

This is the southernmost station on the Lenox Avenue Line. South of this station, the line turns southwest under Central Park, 104th Street, then south once again at about 103rd-102nd Streets, merging with the IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line to become the express tracks of that line.

This has two tracks and an island platform. The platform is wider at its south end than at its north, where it was extended in the 1950s and the tracks curve. Both track walls have some of the original, hanging mosaic designs and the platform has a line of red circular columns in the middle.

The station's artwork, installed during a 1998 renovation, is called Message from Malcolm by Maren Hassinger. It consists of mosaic panels on the platform and main fare control area's street stairs that depict quotes and writings by Malcolm X written in script and surrounded by mosaic borders.

Exits[edit]

This station has two fare control areas, both of which are on platform level:

  • The full-time one is at the south end and has a bank of four turnstiles, token booth, and double-wide staircase going up to the northwest corner of Central Park North and Malcolm X Boulevard.[4]
  • A full height turnstile at the center of the platform leads to a staircase that goes up to the northwest corner of West 111th Street and Malcolm X Boulevard.[4]
