L Train - Bushwick Av.-Aberdeen St. (Day 8, stop #343)

Out:  The area near the station is wide and empty.  There are car dealerships, closed garages, a deli, and some siding/brick houses.  There aren’t many people around, and I can’t really tell who lives here.  There’s plenty of traffic on Bushwick Ave.

In:  The station is now back underground.  There is a brown and yellow tile mosaic, both on the wall, and uniquely, in small colored tile lettering actually on the columns by the platform.  Also, the top border of the platform wall is more elaborate than usual.  The layout here is two opposed platforms and two tracks.  The mezzanine here is wide and spacious, and the station house is at street level.
