Tremont Avenue (IND Concourse Line)

Tremont Avenue is an express station on the IND Concourse Line of the New York City Subway.. Prior to a 1999 renovation, the station had a full length mezzanine connecting both the ends of the station. The full time booth is on the south side at Tremont Avenue with three street stairs and two stairs to each platform. The street stair on the west side has a small passageway. The part time side at the north end has a former booth that was removed during the renovation and two street stairs (one to each side of the Concourse at 179th Street) and two stairs to each platform. There is also one staircase at the center of each platform. They only lead to a storage area, but the passageway can be seen from platform level. The tile band is Claret red and the name mosaics are replicas of the 1933 originals. The I-beams have been painted a shade of red to match. Tile bands are also present in the mezzanines, and matching "T" (for Tremont) plaques have been fitted—the only IND station to feature these. A closed tower sits on the south end of the Manhattan-bound platform.

The 2000 artwork here is called Uptown New York by Frank Leslie Hampton. It uses a mixture of glass and marble mosaics to create a full width display of a Bronx apartment building with a rooftop garden, and clothes hanging out on a line to dry on a cloudy day. This mural is as wide as the mezzanine and faces the full-time booth area.
