241 Street-Wakefield is located in the suberban neighbrohood of Wakefield, a sliver of the bronx that sticks up into Westchester County. The station is the most northern point on the New York City Subway system.
The Metro-North Wakefield stop is just five blocks down 241 Street.
The station itself is like the IRT terminals at Woodlawn, Pelham Bay Park, and Van Cortlandt Park, with two tracks, a central island platform, and side platforms (They were for designed for exiting) that are now abandoned. The middle Track M, which the White Plains Road elevated has, ends just before the station at the 239th Street Yard. Rush Hour Special <5> trains terminate 1 stop south at Neried Avenue also for easier acess to the yard.
