There’s a Wendy’s, a deli, and some gas stations. The stop is also right next to
, but not too much activity in there on a rainy day like this. It’s also relatively close to the Botanic Garden. Outside the station there is a large painted mural of animals and plants, as well as a nice metal façade that says “ Prospect Park ”. It’s hard to tell who lives around here, as it mostly seems kind of industrial/warehouse-y near the station. In the distance I can see some large apartment towers. The few people I see are black, but I can’t tell if it’s more mixed or not. Prospect Park
In: Here there is a five track setup, and the station is part in the cut and part covered. There is one track reserved for the two-car Franklin Park Shuttle (S Train). Otherwise there is the local and express access for the Q and B lines. The station is pretty crappy, with a flat roof over green metal columns. There partially covered part as well as the station house has peeling paint and a leaky roof. The cement walls of the station are unpainted and growing moss. There is surprisingly little graffiti here, though.
