181st Street is a station on the New York City Subway's IND Eighth Avenue Line, located on Fort Washington Avenue and 181st Street, a main shopping district. It is served by the A train. The station has two tracks and two side platforms and is deep below the surface due to the high hills of Washington Heights. Because of this, there are escalators leading to 181st Street from the south end of the station, and a bank of elevators to Fort Washington Avenue near Bennett Park, with an additional exit through the side of the hill leading to Overlook Terrace at the north end, at 184th Street. The elevators can be used by pedestrians going between Overlook Terrace and Fort Washington Avenue without paying a fare. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...
