J/M/Z trains - Fulton St.-Broadway-Nassau (Day 1, stop #44)

Out: The buildings at this intersection are mostly squat and old-looking.  The alleys and streets here are narrow and both the auto traffic and pedestrians must fight to get through.  

It is not ridiculously crowded as it is a bit past the peak of rush hour at this point, but there are still plenty of workers getting out of the office.  The crowd again is quite mixed in terms of race.

In:  This station is also in quite good condition, with a similar color scheme to Broad St., with new tiling and bright lighting.  The uptown and downtown platforms are on two levels, with one track and one platform on each level.  The far wall is tiled in white with a tan tile stripe.  Font on mosaic station names here has serifs and is not as blocky as those on 1 line.  Access is limited by a confusing crossover involving some of the labyrinthine tunnels of the Fulton St.-Broadway/Nassau station.
