In: This stop is still at street level, and the station is similar to 8 Av. with lots of peeling paint. Here the concrete goes up the whole side of the wall, with no railing on the Coney Island-bound side. There are still trees next to the track. There are concrete green columns with small circles connecting them; this is the only nice decorative touch in the station.

N Train - Fort Hamilton Pkwy (Day 6, stop #254)
Out: This stop is now much less Chinese, even though there are still plenty of signs around in the language. However, there is also a Halal meat market, and I see some white, Middle Eastern, and Hispanic people around. In general, also, there are many fewer people on the streets as at 8 Ave., as it’s not a busy intersection. There are gardening, lighting, and plumbing stores here along with delis. There are also a couple of acupuncture places with signs in Korean and Chinese. The housing is mostly red brick apartments with some red brick row houses; it looks pretty residential. Also
Ft. Hamilton Parkway here is a normal surface street, as opposed to the larger street on the F line.
