Elder Avenue (6)

Elder Avenue is located just after the Bronx River Bridge on Westchester Avenue. The station is a typical Westchester Avenue el station. The exits staircases are from a typical cramped dual contracts mezzanine that includes a cross under in the center of the platform. The station has the typical cream colored windscreen found on most elevated platforms; luckily this is on the center of each platform only. On the Manhattan-bound end the trains enter the station descending from the high bridge over the Bronx River. The Whitlock Avenue station is viewable around the curve on the other side of the bridge out a curve in the distance.
