In: Two platform, four track layout with local and express access; this is the last stop for the B train. There is a narrow black column in the middle of the platform to support the concave sloped roof, which is also black. Because of the layout I can again see over the side. The mezzanine and the stairs down the street have been renovated. When I came back in to leave, I tried to use the bathroom and was pretty disgusted to see a homeless guy sleeping on the floor of the bathroom (that was gross on multiple levels). Needless to say, I did not use this one.

B/Q Trains - Brighton Beach (Day 6, stop #264)
Out: There are lots of signs in Russian over here, including department stores, restaurants, ect. Plenty of Russian people as well, but near the stop here it still is a bit mixed, as I saw some Asian, South Asian, and black people on the streets. The intersection itself is quite busy, with a lot of businesses. The housing near the stop is mostly tenements in brick, plus some smaller buildings. Also, the rain has almost stopped, hallelujah.
