Flushing - Bridge St.

Postby newkirk » Fri Jun 22, 2018 6:46 am

Is this the LIRR Flushing Bridge St station ?

I don't see enough space to the right of the name Flushing on the sign to accommodate the words Bridge St.

After enlarging the photo I think I see the word BRIDGE in lettering half the size of FLUSHING, leaving room for STREET underneath.

You can definitely see "Bridge" much clearer in the second photo, but I don't think "Street" is below it. "Bridge" is centered vertically to have room enough below it.
Mineola, NY is my real home, however I live 60 miles from Mineola, MO. No LIRR here!

I'll concur. But, it does resolve Newkirk's OP, I hope! ;-)
