I’m where they put el pillars right in the middle of the street.

I’d say it was somnewhere along New Utretch Avenue under the D train.
On Myrtle Ave under the M Train
Liberty Ave under the A?
under the J line
The J train has a lot of these on the south side of Broadway, where the street cuts the grid and the cross streets are all hit it at an angle. Can’t place this one.
Somewhere under the el on McDonald Avenue.
Stillwell Avenue, near Lafayette High School
New Utrecht Avenue between 72nd st and 66th st
No one’s close.
Is this in Da Bronx?
By the susquehanna hat company on flugal street?
Pelham Bay Line
The M line where it veers off of Palmetto Street in beautiful downtown Ridgewood?
Under 31st Street in Astoria?
I’d guess North Bronx under the 2 or 5.
Close, but where exactly?
Near Waring & Herring? (just kidding)
White Plains Road, maybe? I didn’t get to that part of town much when I lived in NY. When you said the Brooklyn and Queens guesses were way off I figured it should be under the 2/5, since it didn’t really look like anything I remember I saw riding the other Bronx lines.
Q train down past Ave H?
Cruger Ave just north of Sagamore St. under the 5 to Dyre Ave.
Oops, obviously disregard my guess there.
Bronx Park East, White Plains Road Area
Bronx. Cruger Avenue under the 5 train.
I figured it had to be somewhere near a portal or yard where the el isn’t very high. It would also be crossing a one-way street with not much traffic. The Dyer Avenue Line runs on it’s own right of way and crosses a lot of small streets. This is the surviving part of the NYW&B.
Do you know anything about this particular crossing? It doesn’t seem to be protected by zebra stripes or any other warning.
Totally odd. I Google Mapped the street and crossing, and it looks like Cruger Ave must have been added after the old NYW&B Railroad was built. I can’t imagine the railroad would just plop down pillars in the middle of the road, unless Cruger Ave was a dusty little trail at the time and just grew up around the overpass.
It’s somewhere where the el is not over a street
Dyre Ave. Line where it crosses over Cruger Ave.
Flushing Line, along Roosevelt Avenue @ Elbertson Street
cruger av BX.
Ozone Park past 101st
