21 Street-Van Alst (Just 21 St is written on the new maps) has an island platform, green trim (like every other station on the G), and dark purple columns. The station, like most others on the G needs to be renovated. There is one exit at 21 Street (One block over the train yards from Hunterspoint Avenue 7 with two staircases to the street) after going trough fare control there is a portion of the mezzanine whitch is only of a half width, with plywood (fomerly a fence) seperating part of it from the two staircases down to the island platform.
