X. The End of the Line
One’s subway stop forms a core part of everyday identity. Those traveling to the final stations on the Brooklyn lines tend to feel both pride and dread. There is camaraderie but also plenty of isolation. The seclusion allows for muted moments of overlooking the last few neighborhoods untouched by gentrification. An unspoken intimacy is created between these train stations at the end of the line and the people who use them. As with all close relationships, one takes the good with the bad.
