Re: My Route Suggestion of the Old Abandoned LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch

I doubt that. In official signage, NYCT never leaves off the street name suffix (Avenue, in this case).

(Hmmm, I may have to take that back. Is Parsons/Archer official? But that's the only exception I can think of.)

Certainly when Van Wyck Boulevard became Briarwood-Van Wyck, the analogy assumed that Jamaica referred to the neighborhood.

Sheepshead Bay clearly refers to the neighborhood, not the street, even though one of the station exits fronts on Sheepshead Bay Road.

Broad Channel is a terminal, so I omitted it.
