Astor Place is a local station on the IRT Lexington Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Completed in 1904, it is one of the original twenty-eight stations in the system.

The original 28 IRT stations built in 1904 featured entrance and exit kiosks (entrances had domed roofs, exits peaked roofs). As the century rolled on, motorists began to find these large structures an obstruction to viewing traffic signals and stoplights, so they were phased out, with the last ones surviving until the late 1960s. A new entrance kiosk was built for the uptown Astor Place platform in the traffic island formed at Astor Place and Cooper Square in the mid 1980s.
