Out: This neighborhood is more residential, with a bit of office character. There are many small stores, banks, a drug store, and a fancy restaurant, Thalia’s, right on the corner. The neighborhood is quite upscale with a mix of modern apartment buildings but still close to many office buildings as well. There is a wide mix of people on the street, but most look relatively wealthy. I took these photos last week (7/16) in the afternoon.
In: The station here is bi-level, with the C train stopping upstairs with a four track, two plat setup (A express bypass), while the E train is on the lower level; each track is separated by a partition wall so the layout appears to be one track, one platform. The walls are dirty white tiles with a tile mosaic of “
” in the typical 50th St. style on a blue background. There are blue metal columns by the platform edge as well. IND
