Freight


In 1891 the trains surely stopped in Blissville.

It's more than a century later and I've never seen a train stop. But if I'm awake in the depths of the night, sometimes I hear the whistle blow.

I can't believe you found that--so wonderful. I love how everything else BUT the "BLISS" has been painted out!

I remember a wooden structure on the other side of the tracks. At one time Blissville was a hub for freight service. Standing on the Greenpoint Avenue bridge watching the trains roll along under you. Such a simple life.

Hi !

I recall placing pennies on the
tracks near the Greenpoint Ave bridge
and then watching the giant steam locos press them into copper amulets!!
