103rd Street is a local station on the IRT Lexington Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Lexington Avenue and 103rd Street in Spanish Harlem, it is served by the 6 train at all times, and the 4 train late nights.

The station has two side platforms, with the express tracks in the middle, and a mezzanine crossover. There is only one exit from each platform, which is placed close to the south end of the platform. As a result, passengers alighting at this station generally congregate at the front door of the ninth car of a 10-car train traveling uptown, which opens most immediately opposite the platform exit. On a train traveling south, the equivalent door is the last door of the second car. Exits from the mezzanine extend to the southeast and southwest corners of 103rd Street and Lexington Avenue.

The station has recently been renovated. The featured artwork is a 1990 ceramic entitled Nitza, to find it. Mosaics indicating the uptown and downtown directions are also present. The original mosaic was a metaphor for an actual hanging sign, with two strips of mosaic tile representing the vertical bars above the sign. In the renovation, the vertical bars were cut in two and the metaphor was lost.
