J Train - Cypress Hills (Day 4, stop #184)

Out:  Not a whole lot here.  On the North side of the street is Cypress Hills Cemetery, while the South side has P.S. 7.  There’s also a small diner and a closed florist here as well.  Even though I’m now in Brooklyn, the neighborhood retains its ethnically mixed character.

In:  On the train ride over, someone left some condoms on the seats in the train.  That is pretty disgusting.  Also from the train I can see into the neighboring cemetery, which looks quite crowded but contains some nice mausoleums.  Nothing in there compares to Woodlawn Cemetery, though.  The station itself is similar to 75 St., with some fresh paint on the benches and touch-ups on the wall.
