215 Street is a typical local stop on elevated line at the northern end of the Broadway IRT, the stop is located alongside the northern end of the 207 Street Yard and its southern end provides excellent vantage points of that yard with its often oddball assortment of subway cars. The stop has the standard two side platforms with the downtown platform having two street stairs down to the Western corners of 215 Street and 10th Avenue, these staircases lead up to the stations only small station house where turnstiles lead directly to the downtown platform. The uptown platform's access is via two street street stairs: the NE corner is exit only with only a High Exit Turnstile, the SE corner has a single High Entrance/Exit Turnstile that provides the only way to board uptown trains this platform.
