An Amazing Look Under the Vanderbilt Rail Yards

2007_05_Under the Yards

What you're looking at are photos of an old "Electric Car Shop" beneath Atlantic Avenue that was used to repair Long Island Railroad trains. It was photographed by Nate Kensinger and by the flickr photographer who posts as mercurialn. Underneath Atlantic Avenue is an abandoned "Electric Car Shop." Mr. Kensinger writes of the facility:
it sits in the footprint of the Atlantic Yards development site, inside the Vanderbilt Railyards. Empty lunch rooms, abandoned offices, ransacked archives, all with the lights still on. The train yard and nearby tunnels are still in use by the Long Island Railroad, but this shop seems to have been empty for years.
Very, very, very cool stuff.
