110 Street-Cathedral Parkway/Central Park West
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<110 Street-Cathedral Parkway/Central Park West
110th Street-Cathedral Parkway is a IND Central Park West Line local stop. It is the first station where all four tracks are back on the same level after the area beneath Central Park where the tracks are stacked on one another. There are two side platforms on the four-track Central Park West line. The main exit is at the almost southern end of the platform (about the southern or second to the southern end of the train car). Fare control is located on a small mezzanine (by IND standards) above the tracks with two staircases down to each platform and the full time token booth. Entrances are from either side of 109 Street and Central Park West. One is stuck right into the park and has a bit of an unusual design. The downtown platform has an addition part time red token booth entrance (with High Entrance Turnstiles in use at other times) that leads to a single staircase up to the northern corner where 110th Street meets Frederick Douglass Circle, the northwestern corner of central park. There is some evidence of an exit on the northern end of the uptown platform that would have been a counter exit to 110 Street, but it has been closed for years and in the early 2000s when the station was rehabilitated the former abandoned exit area was covered up with a standard tiled wall but the TA uses it for some sort of none public area, there are air conditioners protruding from the walls. A strange touch is that the arrow beneath the name tablets that pointed to 110's exit have been tiled over but the 110 tiles still exist beneath the name tablet in the traditional IND format.

(110b12) Another name tablet on the uptown platform at 110 Street, this one formerly had an arrow beneath it pointing towards the now closed uptown exit to 110, the arrow's tiles have been removed but the 110 lives, looking like it is one of the 110s that seem to fallow a trim line although the station (like all CPW stations) doesn't have the blue trim it should have.

(110b15) A name tablet on downtown platform at 110 Street-Cathedral Parkway, it is on the downtown platform because its 110 has an arrow through it because the exit to 110 Street is still open on that platform.

(110b16) The downtown platform gets slightly wider towards its northern end to make way for the exit to 110 Street with fare control right on the platform.
