Track layout

This station opened on April 21, 1917, as Alburtis Avenue, as the easternmost station of an extension of the Flushing line past Queensboro Plaza.[1] It was later renamed 104th Street, giving the possibility of a sealed exit at the north end, before taking its current name of 103rd Street–Corona Plaza. This station still contains signs, which have been covered, showing Alburtis Avenue. This station was the eastern terminal for the joint BMT and IRT services on the line until the extension to 111th Street opened on October 13, 1925.[1][6][7][8]

The platforms at 103rd Street were extended in 1955–1956 to accommodate 11-car trains.[9]

This elevated station has three tracks and two side platforms.[10] The center track is used by the rush hour peak direction <7> express service.[5] Both platforms have beige windscreens and brown canopies supported by green frames and support columns in the center and green waist-high steel fences at both ends. The station names are in the standard black plates in white lettering, though some lampposts at both ends have their original white signs in black letting.[8][11]


This station's only entrance/exit is an elevated station house beneath the tracks. A pair of staircases from either side of Roosevelt Avenue between 103rd and 104th Streets go up to the station house, where there is a token booth in the center and a turnstile bank on either side.[12] Both turnstile banks lead to a wooden waiting area/crossunder and have a single staircase going up to either platform.[7][8]
