Norwood–205th Street is a station on the IND Concourse Line of the New York City Subway. Located in at the intersection of 205th Street and Bainbridge Avenue in the Norwood section of the Bronx, it serves as the northern terminal of the D train at all times.
The station has two tracks with an island platform in between. North of the station is a double crossover switch with two tail tracks to allow for trains to change direction. South of the station there is a track lead to the Concourse Yard. Exits are located at East 206th Street and Bainbridge Avenue and at East 205th Street and Perry Avenue.
It was originally intended that the IND Concourse Line would be extended past 205th Street to serve the northeast Bronx, but the idea was abandoned when the City of New York bought the right-of-way of the bankrupt New York, Westchester and Boston Railway. This railroad was converted for subway use and is today's IRT Dyre Avenue Line.
The station was originally named simply "205th Street," but in recent years the name "Norwood" (the surrounding neighborhood) has been prefixed on official subway maps.
