A view of the lumbar yard.  Most of the former Bushwick Terminal's tracks have been covered by asphalt.



This was the former passenger terminal of the Bushwick branch, when the Long Island Railroad used to use this line for passenger service.  The building is now an automobile repair shop.  The mechanics who work in this garage were shocked to learn that this building was once part of new York City's railroad history.  LIRR passenger service on the Bushwick branch ended in the early 1920's.  The line has been used for limited freight service ever since.

The building is located on the corner of Bushwick Place and Montrose Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn.



The former "Edward B. Hittleman Brewery", one of the old brewers of Brooklyn's famous pilsners. The Bushwick section of Brooklyn was home to many brewers before many of these companies ran out of business during the 1960's.  For more information on Brooklyn's breweries, check out www.brewingtechniques.com.



A look at some of the other buildings in the area.



This old brick factory dates to the late 1800's.
