Thanks Frankie.

My mistake about SOUTH Ozone Park.

That ROW looks so lonely and forlorn. It's amazing that in the late 70's when riding an (A) train, you would see the old ROW clearly when the subway would join the old LIRR.

But now that part of the ROW has so become overgrown with new trees and saplings. Nature has reclaimed that part of the ROW and doesn't want any trains there anymore. Let's hope this ROW becomes re purposed for transit or railroad traffic and not bicycle traffic. ;-(

The IND "A" Fulton line branches off and becomes the Rockaway line, using the old LIRR ROW.The subject at hand from above. Rockaway Blvd runs diagonal below Liberty Ave.
