Dyckman Street is the first outdoor station on the 1 train after it leaves it's tunnel through Ft. George Hill and Washington Heights. The stop the is fairly interesting being built directly into the hillside. The tunnel portal is the southern end of the platform and most of the station is build on an embankment that has leveled the side of the hillside. The large station house is directly under the platforms and is at street level with some steps leading up to it from street level because of the steep hill. A single staircase leads up from this station house where the turnstiles are to each of the two side platforms for the two track line. This is towards the northern end of the platforms, the only small portion of it than is windscreened and canopied, the rest of the station for the downtown platform is simply a low 1906 era fence, on the uptown platform it is built into the Hillside and before the platform was destroyed was a concrete wall with a few dilapidated name tablets. The northbound platform is currently being reconstructed and is closed until August 2011.
