Reply Mark April 4, 2012 - 4:59 pm Myrtle Ave? Reply Samuel Velasquez April 4, 2012 - 5:48 pm under the J line Reply Liman April 4, 2012 - 6:14 pm 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. Reply Anthony Marcano April 4, 2012 - 6:54 pm Somewhere under the el on McDonald Avenue.

Reply r185 April 5, 2012 - 9:09 am Under 31st Street in Astoria? Reply Steve April 5, 2012 - 10:17 am I’d guess North Bronx under the 2 or 5. Reply Kevin Walsh April 5, 2012 - 10:39 am Close, but where exactly? Reply Heartland April 5, 2012 - 11:50 am Near Waring & Herring? (just kidding) Reply Steve April 5, 2012 - 6:03 pm 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. Reply Nora April 5, 2012 - 11:05 am Q train down past Ave H? Reply Chris April 5, 2012 - 11:42 am Cruger Ave just north of Sagamore St. under the 5 to Dyre Ave. Reply Nora April 5, 2012 - 11:47 am Oops, obviously disregard my guess there. Reply Darryl Screven April 5, 2012 - 4:15 pm Bronx Park East, White Plains Road Area Reply BB April 5, 2012 - 7:56 pm Bronx. Cruger Avenue under the 5 train. Reply Kevin Walsh April 5, 2012 - 10:21 pm Correctamundo Reply BB April 6, 2012 - 5:07 pm 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. Reply Edward April 9, 2012 - 3:17 pm 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. Reply Allan Rosen April 5, 2012 - 9:30 pm It’s somewhere where the el is not over a street Reply Mark April 6, 2012 - 6:24 pm Dyre Ave. Line where it crosses over Cruger Ave. Reply STEVE April 8, 2012 - 10:50 am Flushing Line, along Roosevelt Avenue @ Elbertson Street Reply Miki April 10, 2012 - 2:54 pm cruger av BX.
