story

Hunts Point Avenue is an express station on the IRT Pelham Line of the New York City Subway, served by the 6 train at all times and the <6> train on weekdays in the peak direction. It is located at Hunts Point Avenue and Southern Boulevard in the Bronx.Station layoutThis underground station, opened on January 7, 1919, and has three tracks and two island platforms. The 6 stops on the outer local tracks while the <6> stops at the center express track. This is the northernmost underground station on the line before the elevated stretch to Pelham Bay Park station.The track walls have geometric Vickers-designed mosaic friezes in muted shades of blue, grey and beige, with occasional bits of pale pink. The large identifying plaques show "H P". Matching "uptown" and "downtown" directional mosaics are found in the mezzanine, along with a smaller, simplified version of the frieze found on the lower level. Dark green i-beam columns run along both platforms at regular intervals, a single line in the middle at their ends and one line on each side at their center.ExitsThis station's main fare control area is a mezzanine above the center of the platforms and tracks. Two staircases from each platform go up to a waiting area/crossover, where a turnstile bank provides access to and from the station. Outside fare control, there is a token booth and two street stairs going up to Monsignor Del Valle Square, a city-owned park on the triangle formed by East 163rd Street, Hunts Point Avenue, and Bruckner Boulevard. Unusually for this station, the street-level facility, street stair enclosures, and lights are all made of bricks. Although the platform level is lit by fluorescent bulbs, the mezzanine remains lit by incandescent lights, which were replaced along every platform in the subway by the late 1980s.
