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

Just write down the block and lot number from OASIS and enter it. The list can get you lost for half the night but everything legal that has happened with the land since the early 60ís is there. If somebody is using a RR lot without a lease then ejecting them is probably pretty straightforward. For the old LIRR Substation No 3 land at Atlantic Ave the lack of entries implies no legal activity in all those years which is to be expected for a long running transit property. The Union Turnpike apartment by comparison brings up a 20 item modern history which is typical for private lots. The busses at Atlantic could just be there on a property rental agreement or on a written permission across the Civic Govít and School Board. I also found an old lien on the Bayridge line in here from the MTA in favor of the PRR. And leases between the RRs in Penn Station too.
