The station has a simple island platform engraved with a map of the original HBLR system (no 8th Street or Tonnelle Avenue extensions) on the station platform's by Nina Yankowitz and Barry Holden including platform benches. The windscreens have Coming and Going by Anne Dushanko-Dobek. To leave the platform, at the southern end is a pedestrian grade crossing that leads north. It leads up beneath a portal with a scupture by Tom Nussbaum and Charles Fahlen and down a few steps (with a ramp) to a turn-around loop at the dead end of Richard Street that heads north.
