The Other Side of the Tracks
This Station has a house so close to the tracks the resident could almost lean out and put cream into a rider’s morning coffee.
There is no accommodation for pedestrians on either side, just “country” roads lined with stands of native plans growing aside small streams.
On the side opposite the house, there is merely space for cars to pull in and pick up or drop off passengers.
MTA Staten Island Railway Station 19 of 22
A creek runs parallel to the tracks.
North of this Station are huge stands of phragmites, the large perennial grass.  Their fuzzy seed heads graze the railway car windows as the train whizzes by.  Above them you glimpse the Outerbridge Crossing.
A family waits for the next train as an MTA employee checks the tracks.
