J Train - 75 St.-Elderts Ln. (Day 4, stop #183)

Out:  This neighborhood now feels a bit lower-class when compared to 85 St., but mostly pretty similar.  I stopped at a Chinese place for an egg roll, and there wasn’t any bulletproof glass separating me and the guy at the counter; this is a good sign of some semblance of public safety.  The neighborhood still looks pretty mixed, with black, white, Hispanic, and muslim South Asian presence.

In:  This station is similar to 85 St., with weird arrow-shaped artwork.  From the platform I took two photos of a big high school as well as a cemetery through a wire mesh at the end of the platform (see photos).
