OLDNYC.COM--> Virtual Tour --> Atlantic Ave. to 97th Ave. Picture Gallery #5

This is the view of the top of the trestle.  Lush plant-life and vegetation grow where railroad tracks and ballast once were.

The 97th Avenue trestle, looking east.  The trestle looks like it is in pretty bad shape.  The joints between the steel trestle and the concrete are starting to come apart.  The concrete support beams are starting to rust, further loosening the concrete.

A view of the trestle as the tour makes it's way down 99th street.  A garage door was installed under the ROW.  We will be seeing more of these "enhancements" as we continue to Ozone Park station.
