Re: Latest FBI mafia graveyard excavation in Ozone Park may have stumbled upon 76th Street

Here's an interesting NYC Digital Tax Map showing the subway easement (labeled "REUC") under the buildings at the northwest corner of Broadway and 173 St. The easement is labeled "REUC" The easement does not show under PS 173 since that is city owned property. (PS 173 is at the Ft Washington Av end of the block.):


Here is a Google satellite view of the same area:

Notice that large paved open area in the northeast corner of J. Hood Wright Park. The straight line distance from where the easement on the digital map ends to that open area is about 700 feet. I wouldn't be surprised if that's where the 3 western layup tracks of the 174 St yard end. In fact, some years ago, I was standing in the 175 St station and heard what I thought sounded like the rumble of a train but there were no trains in or near the station. It could have been a yard move.
