Remsen Village, Brooklyn

The Bay Ridge Line continues on its northeasterly course on elevated tracks through Remsen Village.

Remsen Avenue / Rugby / Ford's Corners Station

The old Bay Ridge Line had a station somewhere around this bridge crossing Remsen Avenue. Although the immediate area around the track is industrial, with new retail going in around the corner and plenty of residential just a block north, it would probably be a good spot for a new station.

The Remsen Avenue Bridge (BIN 7702720) is an 53-foot steel girder span. Despite the nameplate listing construction in 1906, the NBI lists it as being built in 1907. Note the vaulted ceiling sections distinguishing it from the steel stringer bridges to the east.

The Railroad Playground at East 92nd Street and Ditmas Boulevard was originally named the Ditmas Playground. A 1997 renovation took a design motif and new name from the nearby train tracks and terminal market.

The East 92nd Street Bridge (BIN 7702710) is a steel girder bridge. Although I can't find an NBI entry for it, it presumably dates from the same time as the adjacent bridges ca. 1906.
