Re: Mystery Photo (Hard?)

Looking at the 1924 version of the NYC GIS Aeriel map, it is the Sea Beach line at a point just opposite to the Stillwell Storage yard, located just south of Dewey HS, and west of the inspection barn.

The siding shown on the 1924 NYC GIS aerial map is horizontally parallel to where the ramp of the West End line rises to reaches the elevated structure at Stillwell Avenue.

I recall active farms adjacent to the CI Yard up until the later part of the 1960's, and Staten Island into the 1970's.
