174th–175th Streets is a local station on the IND Concourse Line of the New York City Subway; it is currently served by the and trains and is located at the Grand Concoursemarker between East 174th and 175th Streets in the Bronxmarker.

This is a typically white-tiled IND underground station with support columns 3/4 to the edge of the platform from the back wall. Its signage are formed from a mosaic of colored tiles with the black tiles forming the black background, white tiles forming the ordinal numbers and their letters and framed by tannish gold tiles about half the size of the normal white tiles. Between the major signage are groups of three normal size station tiles but black with a single number to form "174" or "175" depending on the location within the station. For the station's length a tannish gold decorative line made up of normal sized tiles and bordered on top and bottom with 1/3 size (height wise) black tiles. The station is on a gently curving section of track, sharp enough so you cannot actually see the opposite end of the platform if you are at the other extreme end.

The 174th–175th Street station has three tracks and two side platforms. Its fare control is located at the south end of the station one level down and directly below the tracks with a crossunder between directions. This leads to an exit on the north side of 174th Street, between Walton and Morris Avenues, and directly beneath the Concourse. Access to the Concourse is also located in this area, with the only open exit being on the east side (the exit on the west side of the Concourse is closed). The north end fare control is located directly above 175th Street, which crosses beneath the Concourse, and has exits on both sides thereof. An exit in the underpass directly beneath the Concourse, on the south side of 175th Street is still present, but is closed to the public. Technically, the Concourse Line at this point is not underground but in a totally enclosed tunnel that passes through a hillside with the Grand Concourse at its summit.

This station is located approximately three blocks east and one block north of Mount Eden Avenuemarker ( ) station on the IRT Jerome Avenue Line. Its southern end is less than a block from the famed Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center on the Grand Concourse above.
