Yes, the IRT north of 145th has stations much farther apart than typical IRT stations. That is because the tunnel was drilled in bedrock and it would have been cost-prohibitive to have too many stations. So in upper Manhattan the IND filled in a few gaps. Also, the IND is on a diagonal avenue there, so a 6-block distance is actually closer to 7.
