Queens Blvd-Broadway-4th Avenue Local<77 Street

77 Street 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 1970 cinderblock renovation that covered all of the original trim line along the station's platforms. There are the standard grey bocks with little bright orange 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. Both platforms also have columns along their length, all are painted yellow and are round for most of the platform's length except towards the end where the platform was extended to accommodate ten-car trains and those are the standard I-bean ones. These columns all have 77 Street signs on them.

The main mezzanine, located towards the southern end of the station, still has white tiled walls for some of them, with an old terra-cotta sign for a long defunct Newstands, as well as sings form Men and Woman, restrooms that have long been closed and their signs blacked over with paint. There are also blacked over mosaic directional arrow signs for the uptown (Bay Ridge-bound, opposite of Manhattan directions) and downtown (Manhattan-bound) platforms. This mezzanines lead out to streetstairs has a single staircase to the NW and NE corners of 4 Avenue and 77th Street. The streetstair leading up to the NW corner is still an original 1916 ornate staircase with decorative features, today it is painted green and has a modern advertising panel on top of it. I have no idea if it was painted green originally.

There is a secondary High Exit only turnstile exit towards the southern end of the uptown, Bay Ridge-bound platform. In the little area after the two High Exit turnstiles directly on the platform the original 1915 trim band is visible (the only place it is, along the platforms), with 77 tiled within of it. This exit leads to a full length staircase up to an intermediate landing where passengers must turn 180 degrees to reach the single streetstair up the NW corner of 76th Street & 4 Avenue.
