Out: This intersection is quite busy, with lots of people of all types. There’s a Starbucks, a Foot Locker, HSBC, and lots of other smaller shops (delis, etc.). There are also a number of bars and restaurants.
The housing is a mix of small old houses in brick as well as very large apartment buildings/offices. The people around are mostly white, but there really is a mix of ethnicities.
In: The layout visible here is only a single platform and single track. This station has a strange dual-level design, with the uptown and downtown platforms stacked on top of each other. Also, it’s not possible to see the express tracks. There is a connection to the L at the end of the platform, and a connection to the 1/2/3 down a long tunnel. There is a green mosaic tile station name and a green tile stripe down the wall. There is a long, dim mezzanine with bad lighting to access the exit at
14th St. and 6th Ave.
