2/3/4/5 Trains - Franklin Ave. (Day 10, stop #413)

Out:  There are a couple of stores here at the main entrance to these trains, which is only about half a block from the S station house.  The housing is still mostly tenements and larger apartment blocks, and there are a couple delis, a Golden Krust, and West Indian market.  Eastern Parkway is still wide with plenty of trees.

In:  The layout here is two platform, four track with local (2/3) and express (4/5) access.  The station is dingy and dimly lit.  The platforms have yellow metal columsn by edge and dirty white tiles on the walls.  There is some brown mosaic tiling on the top border with an “F” intersperesed on a dirty blue tile background.  The ceiling looks recently painted, but otherwise the station doesn’t look that great.
