The station entrance

168th Street (also known as Washington Heights–168th Street) is a New York City Subway station complex shared by the IRT Broadway-Seventh Avenue Line and the IND Eighth Avenue Line. Located at 168th Street and Broadway in the Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights, it is served by the 1 and A trains (all times), and by the C (all times except late nights).

Nearby points of interest include the New York-Presbyterian Hospital, the Hudson River waterfront parks, and remnants of the Audubon Ballroom. Access to the station available via manned elevator, although the complex is not handicapped-accessible.

IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue LineEdit

168th Street on the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line has two tracks and two side platforms. This deep station features three elevators and 2 bridges connecting the two platforms. There is a high arched tiled ceiling and incandescent lamps that are no longer in use.

IND Eighth Avenue LineEdit

168th Street on the IND Eighth Avenue Line has four tracks and two island platforms. Contrary to usual express station layout, the inner tracks serve local trains, while the outer tracks serve the express. South of here, the tracks cross over one another and continue south in the regular local-outer/express-inner configuration. A trains stop on the outer tracks, while C trains terminate on the inner tracks. The inner tracks continue north under Broadway to 174th Street Yard, which owes its existence to an abandoned plan for a connection to New Jersey via the lower level of the George Washington Bridge.

The platform-level tile band is a reddish purple with black border, and there are no name tablets. There is a full mezzanine and token booth in the center close to 167th Street.
