7 Train - 40 St.-Lowery St. (Day 7, stop #288)

Out:  The area near this stop is now more residential and less industrial.  There are more apartment buildings in brown brick, as well as more restaurants and other commercial establishments.  There’s also a deli, coffee shop, florist, and “Asian fusion cuisine”.  

Yet despite this last place, it doesn’t really seem like this area is gentrifying, but is just a safe family neighborhood.  The area looks like a mix between Hispanic, white, Asian, and Middle Eastern.  There is also a Korean restaurant and an old-school Irish restaurant.

In:  Similar to 33 St., but in worse condition with more dirt and graffiti.
