This underground station, opened on September 10, 1932, has four tracks and two side platforms. The platforms have no trim line, but the name tablets read "110TH STREET CATHEDRAL P'KWAY." on white lettering in two lines. They are written on a dark blue background and black border. Dark blue I-beam columns run at regular intervals with alternating ones having the standard black station name plate in white lettering. Toward the southern end of the station, the northbound express track descends below the other three tracks of the Eighth Avenue Line.

This station's full-time entrance/exit is at the south end. Two staircases from each platform go up to a mezzanine above the tracks that allows a free transfer between directions. A turnstile bank provides entrance/exit from the system. Outside of fare control, there is a token booth and two staircases to the street. One goes up to the southwest corner of West 109th Street and Central Park West while the other goes up to the east side between the sidewalk and Central Park and is built on a stone banister.

The southbound platform has an additional same-level entrance/exit at the north end. It has a part-time bank of two turnstiles and customer assistance booth (two HEET turnstiles provide access at other times) and one staircase going up to the north end of the Fredrick Douglass circle at West 110th Street. The northbound platform formerly had an entrance/exit at the north end. It has been sealed up with white tiling and used as an employee-only space.

The 1999 artwork is called Migrations by Christopher Wynter in memory of Athie L. Wynter. It has three different areas of mosaic panels, two on each platform and one on the full-time mezzanine.
