7 Train - Hunters Point Ave. (Day 7, stop #284)

The area outside the stop here is desolate and industrial.  I can see old factories nearby, as well as the LIRR maintenance yards.  
The Empire State Building is visible across the river.  There are not many people around; the neighborhood seems mostly white but it’s hard to tell for sure.  Nearby there is only a newsstand and a couple of fruit stands, but nothing else.

In:  Similar to Vernon Blvd., but with large white columns on the platform edge.  On the columns there are large tiles with “HP”.  There are large pillars separating the two platforms, but not a full wall.  The station is deep underground, and a tunnel to cross over to the other side.
