116th Street is a simple IND local stop. There are two side platforms on the four-track Central Park West line. Each platform has one exit at its southern end with staffed token booths on either platform and each has two exits to the street. There is evidence of another exit at the northern end of the station (probably to 118 Street) but all signage in the tiling saying where it went to has been covered up. There are some tiles though that were definitely applied at a different time because they stand out from the name tablet underneath them. There are staffed exits with token booths on either platform and each has two exits to the street. There is no free crossover or under. The station has columns painted blue and blue name tablets and like all the Central Park West (81st Street's renovation was so large that it has trim but not in what would have been the original IND format) local stations has no trim just 116 tiling towards the top of the side platform's walls.
