Out: The streets here are quite dusty, in the process of repaving. There are not many people around, but the area seems to be mostly black or Hispanic, with a surprising number of gentrifiers. The places around are pretty industrial, with a fuel oil place, mattress store, and a pizzeria, but not many other establishments. Nearby there are some low-slung houses with some bigger apartment blocks in the distance.
Many of the buildings look to be on the decrepit side. I did manage to see a Loco Burrito here, one of the few eating establishments, and got some decent lunch at this
In: Similar to
Grand St. There is elaborate tiling on the “ Montrose Ave.” sign on the wall, with a purple and red background and yellow border. The top border of the wall has turquoise, purple, and yellow tiling. The station is a bit dirty and dim, though.
