6 Train - Longwood Ave. (Day 3, 4:39 p.m., stop #140)

Out: At intersection with Southern Blvd. It looks like this stop is near some type of European community. There is a over-primped blond smoking a cigarette outside the station while some a guy walked by with a confused look on his face. There are tenements down Longwood Ave., while on Southern there are mostly small retail buildings. Overall, though, it doesn’t seem to be very populated over here.

In: The station here is leaky and poorly lit. The layout is 4 track (express bypass), 2 platform facing each other. There are sea green columns near the platform edge, and the wall tiling is pretty dirty. Overall not a great station.
