Out: The vibe here is different than that at
Some of the more gentrified spots include a Japanese restaurant, “Golden Café Modern Thai”, and “Johnny’s Café.”
However, this is also the Polonia bakery and many other signs still in Polish. There seems to be a bit more Hispanic presence here as well, but not too much. There are still a few non-gentrified dive bars around, as well as some non-Polish, non-gentrified white people.
In: Similar to
Greenpoint Ave. except there is no real mezzanine area here and I need to use the underpass to cross over to the northbound platform in order to exit. The station is just below street level here.
