OLDNYC.COM--> Virtual Tour --> Rockaway Ave. to Rockaway Park Picture Gallery #4

Jamaica Bay, looking northwest from the subway car.  One can see the World Trade Center in the distance.



Broad Channel station is the last station before the A-train continues it's trip to Far Rockaway.  This station is built on a desolate stretch of property in Jamaica Bay.  A couple of old fishing piers and houses dot the landscape.  It is eerily peaceful at this station, as one hears the sound of the bay and the birds calling to each other.

A shuttle train bound for Rockaway Park waits in the distance.  That's the train that we will be taking in order to continue our journey south.



A cyclone fence separated the subway ROW from the surrounding property.  Houses and utility poles are in the background.



One of the many signal towers that are found along the subway route to the Rockaways.
