Re: Another BMT Canarsie Line history question.

For a long time, the r-o-w was fairly clear until you got close to the Canarsie Shore. Several [maybe many] years ago, the NYCTA finally decided to sell off most of the right-of-way with, IIRC, first dibs to adjacent properties, for backyard expansions and such.

You can still see snippets of right-of-way in odd-shaped buildings, especially near Rockaway Parkway.
