103 Street

ALTHOUGH 103 STREET was originally the next station on all trains after 96 Street, this would not be true for long, specifically until the Lenox Avenue branch opened. This photograph illustrates the cut and cover technique used to build most of the original route. As at the rest of the Broadway stations, there are gratings at street level above the tracks along the median strip of Broadway that let in natural light to the station.
