There are lots of other small commercial shops, including the bar “Pumpkins”, a fish market, a deli, a meat market, a check cashing place; the usual lower-income kind of spot. There is still a strong West Indian presence, but there is a bit more Hispanic mixing in. Also I saw a couple of Middle Eastern guys trying to sell a large rug to a woman in the middle of the sidewalk; kind of random. Most of the residential buildings are three story brick apartments. It doesn’t look too bad an area, but not great, either.
In: This is a very nice station! It’s brightly lit, with gleaming white tiles on the walls. There is a mosaic tile station names have a royal blue background with a green border. On the walls, there are yellow and green tile borders and on the top there are larger beige tiles with a “C” on a blue background. There is a blue-grey column by the platform edge.
