145th Street is a two level express station on the IND Eighth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway, located at the intersection of 145th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue in Manhattan. It is served by the A nd D trains (all times), by the C train (all times except late nights), and by the B train (weekdays).
The upper level of the station is used by the A and C trains. The band is gold with black border. The station had a full mezzanine, although the central portion is now used as a police precinct. The lower level is used by B and D trains. The tile border here is gold with black and the name tablets are black with gold border. The northbound platform is extra wide, so that the three trackways on the lower level line up directly with those above. Escalators lead up from this level to the mezzanine, bypassing the upper-level platforms.
This is the last stop for the B during midday and early evenings. At these times, it lays up on the middle track. During rush hours, D trains stop on the middle track, since it runs express on the IND Concourse Line in peak direction, and local stations are served by the B.
The station is a frequent transfer point for fans using the D train to reach Yankee Stadium. It is also close to the northern edge of the City College campus. The station and the streets leading to the College are well policed.
