The Tower Hill station sat between Sharpe and Treadwell Avenues and served the west side of Port Richmond. The station is not slated for reactivation, probably due to its proximity to both the Port Richmond and Elm Park stations.
The mostly residential neighborhood features closely-packed but large late-19th and early-20th century homes. Some of the neighborhood properties could use some improvements, but there don't appear to be alot of vacant lots. The residents would probably be quite hostile to having alot of homes torn down for large, dense redevelopment projects.
The Port Richmond viaduct ends between Treadwell and Nicholas Avenues and heads into a trench to points West. Just before returning to grade level, the line crosses over Treadwell Avenue on a formidable-looking pony plate bridge. The line was unfenced at this point when I visited in 2009, making it possible to climb onto the bridge. However, overgrowth to the west and east would make further walking on the line a fairly arduous hike.
