Day 851

The old Port Richmond station

April 29th, 2014

on the abandoned North Short branch of the Staten Island Railway. You can see the skeleton of the platform shelter still standing on top of the viaduct. The short brick building at right looks like it could have once been the station house, although I can't find any evidence that it actually was. If I'm reading this page correctly, Kevin Walsh identifies it as a former public restroom. For what it's worth, this 1936 photo (found here) shows that the building dates back at least as far as the elevated station itself.
