The buildings are mostly in brick and well-maintained. Some of the apartment buildings have sharp, sloping roofs, approaching Tudor-style architecture.
There is a nice
Brooklyn public library building, an upscale-looking bar called “Speakeasy”, a fancy steakhouse, and an “International Food” restaurant with Cyrillic characters. There are also some other services and a church. Ethnically, it looks mostly white around here.
In: The layout here is single platform with two tracks for trains to lay up at the end of the line. There is white tiling on the walls with a mosaic tile top border, mostly in yellow. The station is definitely nicer than 86
St., but still a little dingy the lighting is good, at least. The mezzanine is long and wide with yellow metal columns. On the way back into the train I used the bathroom here, which was in surprisingly good shape with bright blue tiles. It was kind of strange, though, as there were no partitions for stalls and just a couple of toilets sitting out in open space.
