L Train - 8th Ave. (Day 10, stop #444)

Out:  See photos and description of A/C/E Trains - 14th St.

In:  To get down to the platform, I must walk down long a staircase with metal steps, lit by harsh orange sodium lamps.  The layout here is one platform, two track with a tiled wall at the west end, as this is the last stop on the line.  The platform is quite wide and well-lit.  The columns here are covered with white tile and look new, as well as the white tiles on the wall, and the station has burgundy-colored tile accents.  There is a nice mosaic tile “8” within a tan and green stripe at the top of the wall; these tiles look like they have also recently been replaced or cleaned.
