Historic Track Configuration under Bay Ridge Towers

Post by carfloater » Tue Dec 04, 2018 12:12 pm

Hi all,

Would anyone here have some insight into the historic track configuration under the Bay Ridge Towers (Bay Ridge Branch btwn 2nd and 4th avenues) before, during, and after the construction of the buildings? While currently there is one in-service track used by NYNJ and NYAR and one out of service track that leads to 1st Avenue, I am hoping to gain a better understanding of when tracks were removed. Any information or photos would be helpful.

Thanks,

Carfloater

I’m assuming just north of there is where they’re talking about expanding storage tracks and transloading in BK.
