A Train - 175 St. (Day 1, stop #15)

Out: Lots of moms with strollers. Here is more Dominican than 181 St., with fewer white people around, but still some there. There is a park directly next to the station, with baseball fields (on a hard surface), playgrounds, and other facilities. Kids are playing baseball in the park. 

Can see the top of the George Washington Bridge poking over the trees in the park. Besides that this stop is very residential, with no stores around, just a tenements.

In: Subway station itself if fairly non-descript. A single platform with tracks on both sides, white tiling on the walls. Given the people outside, there is a surprising number of white people in the station; maybe has to do with people who walk down from the GWB Bus Terminal to catch the train downtown.
