This is the abandoned Queens elevated railway posted about earlier. Video from Jeff Seal.
Did you know Queens has its own abandoned elevated railway? I sure didn’t! Jeff Seal went and took a few photos there. Apparently it runs from Rego Park to Ozone Park and community leaders are hoping to turn it into Queens’ version of The High Line. Cool, no?
Look at these people just parked on the side of the road to watch an airplane taxi. This would never happen today.
