F Train - Ave. X (Day 5, stop #210)

Out:  Still Gravesend.  One side of the street has a factory and car wash, while the other has small shops and a bar.  There aren’t too many houses right here, but the people around seem to indicate a mix of European, Hispanic, and Asian.  There is actually a sushi place by the stop here.  I walked over to W. 3rd St., and the neighborhood definitely looks very residential.  

I saw old Italian guys in wifebeaters hanging outside the Memorial Home, as well as grizzled old dudes outside the OTB.  There are also some signs and newspapers in Russian.  Someone had fond memories for Frankie Bones.

In:  Similar to Ave. I.
