7 Train - Junction Blvd. (Day 7, stop #297)

Out:  Here the air is thick with the smell of fish and other goodies being cooked up nearby.  There are small groceries, delis, restaurants, and lots other stores on Roosevelt.  There are families walking around together on this Friday afternoon, and the houses are still pretty small-scale.  

The area is mostly Hispanic, but I’m not sure which (if any) country predominates here.  There is also some mixing of other ethnicities.

In:  Here there are two narrow platforms and three tracks with local and express access; this setup has no walls on the platform so there’s a good view.  Narrow green columns support a sloped wooden roof.  On the mezzanine there are wooden walls painted white and brick floors.  There is an interesting elevator overpass with green metal and wavy, thick glass.  The paint is peeling on the exit stairs.
