Re: Why there are few off-street terminals in NYC?

Yes on all counts.
I came across photos on a website. I believe it was the N.Y. Historical Society, but I can't seem to locate it now.
The North Shore Bus Co, routes that used it were the 12 (which then ran all the way to Glen Cove), 13,14,15 & 16. The 26,27,28 & 48 did not use it. The 17-20 & 44 did not use it because they were through routes.
It was similar to the Long Island Bus Terminal on 165th St. in Jamaica.
It was an open lot with bays along the front. The back of the property was bound by the L.I.R.R. ROW.Along Roosevelt Ave. was a three story building with stores along the street and offices above. It was white brick. The buses entered and exited through a center portal along Roosevelt.
