7 Train - 82 St.-Jackson Heights (Day 7, stop #299)

Out:  The street scene is very similar to 90 St. as well, with many small businesses around.  The area is still mostly Hispanic, but some South Asian influence is creeping in, along with a few whites here. 

The housing looks like a mix of small apartment buildings and tenements.  There are lots of families out again, and the area looks a little more upscale than the previous stops. 

In:  The stop here is similar to 90 St., but with green columns and an enormous “82” in six-foot-tall metal letters on the platform wall.
