Out: The station is directly at the North End of Central Park, so it’s very quiet on the south side of the street.
There is a group of rowdy guys outside the station on the north side of the street. There is a huge condo building going up here, but there are many nice Harlem-architecture apartments on the block as well.
In: Just one platform for train in both directions here. There are tile mosaic quotes at the entrance, covering subjects such as equality and God, in bright blue and dim green. Inside the station there are also blue and white tile mosaics. The lighting is a little dim and the wall tiles are kind of dirty, but it’s not that bad overall.
