J Train - 104 St. (Day 4, stop #180)

Out: This neighborhood continues to look quite ethnically mixed, but a little rougher.  There is a gym here called “Maximum Workout”, as well as plenty of beauty salons, barber shops, and pizzerias.  The houses down 104 St. are predominantly the attached kind.  Overall this place has a good “neighborhoody” feel.

In: This station is again similar to 121 St., with a bit of a view over the sides.  Also there is some strange kind of “painted circle” artwork on the wall paneling of the Jamaica-bound side (see photo).  Strangely, also, here the 3rd track is missing and there is only a big gap in between the other 2 tracks.
