In: Similar to N. Blvd. but with purple columns. On this hot day I managed to find a spot on the platform that somehow has a cool breeze of A/C, which is a great relief.

R/V Trains - 46 St. (Day 7, stop #304)
Out: The area around this stop is again very residential. There are mostly small houses with some smaller apartments. The people are a mix of South Asian, East Asian, white, and Hispanic, and each group seems about equally divided. The block itself looks very quiet. There are only a couple of small businesses, including mom & pop grocery, donuts, hairstyling, insurance, etc. This definitely appears to be a nice place for the kids. There may be some gentrification going on in this neighborhood, or at least there is a surprising number of well-off-looking white people.
