✎ The one-story station -- opened in 1928 -- features an octagon-shaped central section with arch windows, a hip roof crowned by a cupola, and flanking wings with limestone framed entrances. Curiously, this impressive building, incorporating Beaux-Arts and neo-Georgian design elements, is attributed to John R. Sliney, the Fire Department’s Building Inspector -- the assisting architect is unknown.
