Brooklyn & Queens
This Coney Island-bound
(southbound) McDonald Avenue PCC is approaching the West 5th Street depot,
and is about to cross under the double deck elevated that runs between
Ocean Parkway and Stillwell Avenue as part of the "D" and "F" lines.
The location is about 1000 feet south of the Brighton Laundry, on the private
right of way (PRW) that began at Triton Avenue and West 6th Street (Shell
Rd.). This PRW at one time began at Avenue X/86th Street and the
southern end of McDonald (formerly Gravesend) Avenue, where McDonald Avenue
had its name changed to Shell Rd. The elevated to the left is the "F" line,
still in use, between the Van Sicklen Avenue station to the
north and the West 5th Street
station to the south.
Note: This location
can be determined by the distintive roofline of the power station visible
to the immediate right of the motorman.
