Abandoned Train Line in Queens

POST #    1040

Yesterday, Mike led a tour of an abandoned LIRR line in Queens - the far reaches of Queens. I don't have too many details on the line, which was off the J train, but maybe Mike can share some in his entry or in a comment. All I know is the "entrance" was in a park, the rail line passed behind houses, and that there were some transients that scared the shit out of me when they came up from behind.

A special thanks to Mike for leading everyone on the expedition.

Actually, the very near reaches of Queens -- practically Brooklyn -- and it's the Rockaway line.
