125th Street is a simple Lenox Avenue line station. The station has two side platforms and was recently renovated in about 1996. Fare control is along the side platforms in the middle and each area has the customary two street stairs one up to either corner of 125 Street and Lenox Avenue with no free crossover or under. The station still has orginal looking name tablets and terra cotta cartouches in the trim. Along the trim for the rest of the station are mosaic representations of the cartouches. In the platform extension portion of the station the name tablets are in a modern mosaic design with a modern font.
