Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line

Posted by GP38/R42 Chris on Wed May 9 21:56:04 2012, in response to Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line, posted by Edwards! on Wed May 9 12:52:08 2012.

That is incorrect. The MTA DOES own the land the Rockaway line is on from Liberty Junction to Rockaways, as well as lines like the M line which is over ROW instead of street, such as the M train el from Onderdonk Ave (just north of Seneca station) to Metropolitan Ave.

The Rockaway line (abandoned part) from Whitepot to Liberty junction is owned by the City of New York.

Here's the tax record of ownership for the Rockaway Line South of Liberty Junction:

Borough QN
Tax Block 14147
Tax Lot 14
ZIP Code 11414
Address 102 STREET

Owner Name CNY/NYCTA
Ownership Type
House No 347
Street MADISON AVE
Apartment No
City NEW YORK
State NY
ZIP Code 10017-3706
Last Updated 9999-12-31
Billee Name CNY/MTA

The tax record for north of Liberty Junction, the abandoned part, is quite different:

Borough QN
Tax Block 9075
Tax Lot 12
ZIP Code 0
Address 97 AVENUE

Owner Name DCAS
Ownership Type C
House No 1
Street CENTRE ST
Apartment No RM 2000N
City NEW YORK
State NY
ZIP Code 10007-1604
Last Updated 2008-08-19
Billee Name D C A S

DCAS stands for Department of Citywide Administative Services.

Here's a sample of the M train ROW ownership:

Borough QN
Tax Block 3502
Tax Lot 6
ZIP Code 11385

Here's an sample example of the Brighton Line, also private ROW, and also owned by the NYCTA:
