R/W Trains - 28 St. (Day 5, stop #243)

Out: This stop is definitely in the garment district, with lots of firms doing import/export/distribution/wholesale of clothing (or at least the ones that haven’t been priced out yet).  The streets are still crowded over here, and many people look a little bit shadier than farther downtown.  

There are lots of South Asian/African/Middle Eastern dealers and traders hawking their wares.  There are shoppers of all types, but not as many tourists.  There are lots of office workers around here as well.

In: Similar to Prince St., nicely renovated with green/blue trim.  The walls have whimsical mosaic tile pictures of imaginary and strange toys.
