This station, which opened on July 1, 1918, has two side platforms and four tracks. It was renovated in 1991–2, but retains its original trim line and name tablet mosaics and no artwork was installed. Beige columns run along the entire length of both platforms with every other one having a name tablet.

Each platform has a same-level fare control area that is staffed full-time and contains a turnstile bank, token booth, and two street stairs. The southbound side leads to both western corners of Seventh Avenue and 18th Street while the northbound side leads to the eastern corners.

Each platform has an exit-only at the north end containing a platform level turnstile and emergency gate and single street staircase leading to 19th Street and Seventh Avenue (the southwest corner for the southbound side and southeast corner for the northbound one).
