1 Train - 110 St. (Day 1, stop #21)

In: Newly retiled station, also in very good condition. Similar to 116 St, but with tile mosaic sign reading: “110 St.Cathedral Parkway”. The color scheme here is green and brown/pink. Two platform, three track layout with express bypass. No mezzanine and no crossoveravailable; booth next to track one level below street.

Out: Clearly still in MorningsideHeights/Columbia Area. The vast majority of people are well-off, of all different races but white predominates. There are a number of largeapartment buildings, two of which are clearly very new.

A couple of upscale grocery stores as well as some nice-looking restaurants and clothing stores, along with some banks and a couple of smaller shops surround the intersection.
