25th Street is a 4th Avenue Subway Line local stop that got the standard cinderblock style renovation in the 1960s that covered up all the original 1910s name tablets and trim lines, along the platform except the trim line is still visible on the tiny platform level fare control areas in the middle of each platform (there is no free crossover), weaving its away behind the token booth (there is only one now on the Manhattan-bound platform) and MVMs. It's mostly brownish with 25s in it at various intervals. The station's walls are all off-white except for bright orange indentation areas where platform signs are. Each direction has a single streetstair at the SW or SE corner of 4th Avenue and 25th Street. The station platforms are columnless except for a section at the extreme northern ends, where their painted cream colored and are I-beams, this area was added when the platform was extended to accommodate ten car trains. The station's platforms feel like their isolated because there is almost a full wall between the local and express tracks that are mostly tiled over, like all of the 4th Avenue Subway Stations.
Looking down the simple Bay Ridge/Bensonhurst-bound platform at 25 Street, with R160A-1 #8428 on a Bay Parkway-bound M train stopped in the station.
A 25 Street sign above a painted arrow that points towards the station exit, on an orange portion of the platform wall.
Looking down a narrow side platform, that seems to get even narrower because the turnstiles extened out onto at 25 Street.
25 text in the old 1910s mosaic trim that only exists in the fare control area at 25 Street.
Looking out to the fare control area for the Brooklyn-bound platform at 25 Street. The area is quite small with a single staircase up to the street and a narrow token booth.
Another view out into the entrance area to 25 Street, with its mosiac trim, and an old dusty incandescent light bulb still in its holder.
The Zebra stipes conductors stop boards in the middle of the basically bare Brooklyn-bound platform at 25 Street.
Looking towards the Northern end of the Brooklyn-bound platform at 25 Street, where there's an extremely low cieling and lots of columns. This is because this part of the station was added later when platforms were extended.
Another view of the portion of 25 Street's platform that was added later, with its cream colored columns and very low cieling.

The 25 in the trimline of the station entrance
Doors that say closed, wonder if this was the original bathroom or perhaps a rare built into the wall token booth?
Removed signs, what's a FareTickets?
