Greetings,
I believe it's over 89 Ave, Richmond Hill, next to the Montauk Branch facing northwest

The BMT Jamaica El is visible as well.
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

Right. 89 Ave just east of 121 St. The building in the right background used to be Keiner-Williams Stamping Co. -- maker of milk cans. Noisy place while still in that business! Auction site has a can made in 1952, so they weren't long gone when that picture was taken, but that stainless steel ductwork is, I believe, post KW.
