4 Train - Burnside Ave. (Day 2, stop #72)

Out: Area seems ethnically mixed between black, Dominican, and African. Most of the commercial places are either mom & pop stores, including the “Virgin” beauty supply with its logo ripped off from Richard Branson’s company. Somehow, though, I doubt they’re gonna sue for copyright. There is also a Burger King and a Jimbo’s hamburger nearby.

In: the layout here is 2 platform, 3 track. However, it appears that the express track is unused, but maybe they had express service here at some point. From the platform it’s possible to make out the hazy outline of the Empire State Building in the distance.
