Port Washington Branch at Little Neck


062
by Nexis4Jersey09, on Flickr

Quote:
Opened : July 1870 (F&NS)
Daily Passengers : 2,886
Electrified : 750V DC 3rd Rail
County : Queens

Little Neck Parkway at the west end of the station crosses the line at the only at-grade railroad crossing on the Port Washington Branch, and one of the few remaining in New York City. It is also the only "quiet" grade crossing in the LIRR system. Trains do not need to blow their horns here, because trains are coming to a complete stop here, and Little Neck Parkway is not a high-traffic road. It is regarded as the most dangerous crossing in the city.
