2/5 Trains - Simpson St. (Day 3, stop #122)

Out: This stop has nothing particularly exciting or different, really.  There are tenements, mom & pop stores, fast food, and check cashing.  A couple of discount and 99¢ are also thrown in for good measure.  The one interesting building is an old movie house, the “Boulevard Theater”, now converted into a furniture store.  Ethnically the neighborhood seems pretty mixed between blacks and Hispanics. 

In: On the way over, I saw lots of good graffiti from the train.  The stop itself is similar to Freeman St.
