I forgot something about the 59th Street station when I typed that post. I transfer from there to the “F” train to go to Roosevelt Island. What is unusual is one has to walk to the 63rd Street station to get on the “F” train, this is one of the few stations where there is a ‘free transfer’ option. If you swipe with the same Metrocard you used to get on the first train, there is no additional charge. I don’t think of this because I have a 30-day unlimited card, but if you pay per ride this is a nice feature.


Now we get to the 51st Street station. Nothing really remarkable about this station, nicely kept up and a news stand, but no pretty pictures in the tile, unless, you look at the tile in the number sign, I like how they use different types of blue tile, some shiny some matte, makes for a nice effect.


Here’s a close-up of the blue tile.

This was the last stop for me this trip, the next stop on the green train is Grand Central Terminal. At Grand Central there are many tiles with “42” on them, they are just white tile with black letters. I found a picture on my flash drive.

So I hope you have enjoyed this trip on the ‘Evil Green Train’. Now I am trying to decide if I should continue past 42nd Street for my next series or if I should pick another train line. Stay tuned.
