1 Train - Dyckman St. (Day 1, stop #4)

Out: Again mostly residential and Dominican here. The most striking feature here is now the elevated tracks over the street heading north, which I hadn’t seen at the previous stations.

In: train elevated now, nice view of buildings in Bronx. 

Platform: 2 facing each other with 2 tracks only. Metal ridged panels in off white for part of platform, with roof and no metal columns. One on end a parking lot is right up against the tracks, even slight above it…weird place for the grade, because tracks are partly above ground & partly at street level. Station house is kind of built directly under the tracks, in concrete.
