Inbound from Astoria

A green signal shines for outbound Astoria traffic, and a train from there curves its way into Queensboro Plaza's lower level.  The switches between former BMT and IRT at this station represent the Flushing Line's only connection to the rest of the New York City Subway system.   With the two lines joining for this station, this is a fascinating location.  In addition, there are fine views of Manhattan and of industrial and commercial Long Island City.  It is hard not to spend some time here if you have time to spend, and you know about it, and you have that certain urban or railroad inclination.
