"There's some city property near the BQE...not sure, but it may be parkland. As a kid, some of us locals used to play softball there, but it is now being used by contractors that are storing demo containers filled with debris and construction materials. They also are parking commercial vans and pickups there." - Anonymous

The 1951 map above shows the outline of what appears to be the contributor's ballfield.
I tried to look up this property, but according to the NYC Tax Map, this property doesn't exist. Which is probably why local businesses did what they did with it.
