2 Train - 225 St. (Day 3, #111)

Out: There is still a strong Jamaican/West Indian feeling here.  The housing is a mix of houses and tenements.  Some of the houses have pointed, triangular roofs as opposed to flat roofs farther up the 2 line (see Sketch).  Surprisingly, there is actually a fruit & vegetable store here.  225 St. is a pretty minor road, and is tree-lined on both sides.  Actually looks quite pleasant.

In: The most prominent feature of this station is a smelly, bug-eyed homeless guy with a guitar.  Otherwise the station is clean, new, and looks nice.  So it was a bit of a contrast.
