Bedford-Nostrand Avenue was supposed to a track connection station to the proposed IND Second System. North of the station there is a completely unused interlocking where two stub tracks enter the G's main tracks before crossing under the with them, having crossovers with them and then becoming a single terminating track that is the center track at Bedford-Nostrand Avenues and ends with switches to the other two tracks south of the station. The station itself has a three track, two island platform layout. Only the two outer tracks are used in revenue service although work equipment such as a garbage train has been scene stored in the center track. The station has a full-length entirely still open mezzanine with staircases between the mezzanine and the platforms at regular intervals. There is an exit at the very northern end of the platform (mezzanine) for Nostrand Avenue. This is where the token booth is and its fully staffed. At the southern end of the platform (mezzanine) is the exit for Bedford Avenue; fare control is MetroCard High Entrance and Exit Gates. Currently only staircases to the Eastern Side of Bedford Avenue are open, the mezzanine used to continue with an underpass area outside of fare control to more exits on the western side of Bedford Avenue but it has been closed with a simple fence closing it off. The staircases at street level are still in existence with Do Not Enter signs on them. Since the station has two exits at the extreme ends of the platforms its a common place to see the G train Dash being ran.

(bedford_nostrandg6) A closed entrance on the western (southern) side of Bedford Avenue, No entry signs are on it telling people to cross Bedford Avenue to reach the subway. For some reason a green globe is on the top of the entrance even though it is closed.

(bedford_nostrandg8) The view of the passageway that used to continue to the staircases on the eastern side of Bedford Avenue, beyond fare control. The fence looks fairly old although there are still lights on in it and adds on the walls.

(bedford_nostrandg10) Looking down the first staircase to the Brooklyn-bound platform nearest to the Bedford Avenue entrance. There is a crucial sign at the bottom of it that says trains stop towards the center of the platform

(bedford_nostrandg11) Looking down the long and decently wide mezzanine at Bedford-Nostrand Avenues that connects the two exits. It is slightly askew from being directly over both of the platforms.
