The station has an island platform and two tracks. South of the station, tracks diverge from the line on the Saint George-bound side to the Clifton Yard. This is where the railway cars are moved from the Staten Island Railway by truck to get work done at the Coney Island Shops.
The north end has an exit to Prospect Street and a New York City Department of Transportation Park and Ride facility to the west side of the right-of-way (next to Bay Street). The south end exits to Water Street and Bay Street.
