190th Street (originally 190th Street–Overlook Terrace), located on Fort Washington Avenue about 240 meters (260 yards) north of 190th Street, has two tracks and two side platforms. It is served by the A train at all times. The station is near Fort Tryon Park and Mother Cabrini Shrine in Washington Heights. Template:Coord The Cloisters medieval art museum is located in the park, about a 20 minute walk north from the station. The station is 140 feet (43 meters) below the surface, due to the very high hills of Washington Heights. Because of this there is a bank of elevators to Fort Washington Avenue, with an additional exit through the side of the hill leading to Bennett Avenue. The elevators can be used by pedestrians going between Bennett and Fort Washington Avenues without paying a fare.
