Railyard Block 1121
Atlantic Avenue between Carlton Avenue and Vanderbilt Avenue
With rail lines passing to the north and into a cut-and-cover tunnel on their way to the Jamaica LIRR station, the easternmost railyard block has been used primarily for bus parking. The side of the block on Vanderbilt hosts gas stations.
This block will be merged with the block immediately to the south. Since there are only two tracks, they will presumably be covered with a tunnel and the below-grade area further excavated to provide the foundation for three large residential towers.
