Bay Ridge Avenue/4th Avenue Subway
Home<N.Y.C. Subway Stations<Bay Ridge Avenue/4th Avenue Subway
Bay Ridge Avenue is a typical two side platform station towards the southern terminus of the currently two tracked BMT 4th Avenue Subway Line. The station got the awful 1970s cinderblock renovation that covered all of the original trim line along the station's platforms. There are the standard grey blocks with little bright blue indentation areas where the station's name signs are and text painted onto the walls that mostly say exit and an arrow pointing towards the station's main exit, a small mezzanine area south of center of the platform. This mezzanine still has white tiled walls for some of it; with a original non-descript trim line above it. This mezzanine has a single staircase to either side of 4 Avenue and Bay Ridge Avenue. There is a secondary High Exit only turnstile exit towards the southern end of the uptown, Bay Ridge-bound platform. In the little area before the long, double floor staircase up to the street, the original 1915 trim band is visible (the only place it is, along the platforms), with B.R. tiled within it. Only the 95 Street-bound platform has columns along it, all are painted blue and are round for most of the platform's length except towards the ends where the platform was extended to accommodate ten-car trains and those are the standard I-bean ones. These columns all have round Bay Ridge Av signs on them.
