The station opened on December 3, 1885 as part of a one station extension of the Lexington Avenue Line from Alabama Avenue. This station was the eastern terminus of the line until May 30, 1893 when it was extended to Cypress Hills.
This station was closed from March 25 to August 6, 2006 in order to be rehabilitated. As part of the rehabilitation project, the stairs were rehabilitated, the floors were renewed, major structural repairs were made, new canopies were installed, the area around the station booth was reconfigured, the platform edge strips were replaced, walls were replaced, and a high-quality public address system was installed. The rehabilitation project cost $8.52 million.

The artwork here, THE VIEW FROM HERE by Barbara Ellmann, was installed in 2007. This artwork is supposed to be evocative of structures in the surrounding area.
The station's only entrance and exit is a center mezzanine under the tracks with wooden floors and walls. This mezzanine is to the geographic south of the northbound track. Outside of fare control, two stairs go to southwest and southeast corners of Fulton Street and Van Siclen Avenue.
