      Yes it is. There’s a staircase that goes down
      into the middle of that island. I’m not sure what it’s there for. Might be something left over from the P.E. days.

    Those were the days for comfortable, clean and convenient public transportation as the picture depicts the neat and nice neighborhood near this station.
