Maspeth Tracks in the Rain

Maspeth Tracks in the Rain

Here's a shot from the abandoned train hike on Saturday-- this is at the Bushwick Junction, looking West towards the city. I would advise caution exploring this area alone-- while the Bushwick tracks appear quite unused, with large, abandoned freights parked along both tracks, the Long Island City tracks are still occasionally trafficked-- as we discovered when a Metro North locomotive suddenly barreled out of the fog at us, horns blasting.

Here are some things I saw abandoned by the tracks: a dead chicken, a Vespa.

Unrelated: don't forget-- tonight is NYCPB10: the last NYCPB event at the Apple Store SoHo! It starts at 6:30.
