121 Street is a simple two side platformed Jamaica Avenue elevated line station. The station has the older cream colored metal windscreens, and has two exits. The full time entrance is at the southern (western) end of the station: there's a single staircase that leads down from each platform to the standard mezzanine area beneath the tracks, after the turnstiles a pair of staircases leads down to either side of Jamaica Avenue on the west side of 121 Street. The station has secondary unstaffed exits at the other (eastern/southern) end of the station. These simple exits lead down to the west side of 123 Street and consist of a single staircase down from each platform to an intermediate landing level, where the station house beneath the tracks has been closed to public use. From here there's a High Entrance/Exit Turnstile from the Manhattan-bound platform and only an old wooden High Exit Turnstile (making it an exit only exit) from the Jamaica-bound platform. The station is windscreen and canopied for almost its entire length between the station's two exits.
