Original mosaic tiles

This underground station, opened on June 22, 1915,[4] has four tracks and two side platforms. Black and white curtain walls separate the express tracks from the local tracks.

The platforms are columnless except for a section at the extreme north ends where they were extended from their original length to accommodate the current standard B Division train length of 600 feet. These columns are I-beams and are painted cream colored.

This station was overhauled in the late 1970s and most of the original platform name tablets and trim lines were replaced with cinderblock tiling. The wall tiles are all white except for the small recesses where the station's name and directional signs are. These recessions are colored orange. The trim line is still visible in the fare control areas behind the token booth and MetroCard Vending Machines. It is in the standard BMT format with "25" number tablets in it at regular intervals.


Each platform has a same-level fare control area in the center. As a result, there is no free transfer between directions. Each fare control area has a turnstile bank, token booth, and single street stair. The staircase on the Bay Ridge-bound platform goes up to the southwest corner of 25th Street and Fourth Avenue while the one on the Manhattan-bound side goes up to the southeast corner.[5]
