Following on our thread several months ago about comings and goings of New
York Central and predecessors in city streets south of 42nd Street, here's a
photo of a plant under construction at Ave D and 14th Street around 1910 --
along one side (I can't tell if it's 14th St or Ave D) are what look like
real class I RR freight cars. How would they have gotten there? Were there
branches that far over from the NY&H line down 4th Avenue and Bowery? Were
there once carfloats and float bridges onto the east side as there were so
many onto the west side? Or . . . ?
