Here is a relic of LIC's industrial past. This location is adjacent to the NY Water Taxi dock at Hunters Point. It is the former Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal railroad float bridge. Railcar barges were loaded and unloaded here. The road that this was closest to had been called Pidgeon Street. Wouldn't it be nice to preserve this piece of the area's history and incorporate it into a waterfront park? I mean, hell, if we can spend hundreds of millions of dollars to save the High Line, then... oh, wait, how silly of me. This is in Queens. Bring on the bulldozers!
