6 Train - 103 St. (Day 2, stop #82)

Out:  There are more gentrifiers here; definitely getting to border with UES.  Besides that there is a mix of black and Hispanic.  “El Barrio” grocery is nearby, but the name can’t fool everyone; you can tell the white people are coming.  I walked down to 96 St.

In:  The tiling here is older-looking and brownish, more a 70’s-style interior.  The station is also dirtier and more dimly lit.  There is some artwork made up of ceramic tile in a frame.
