Overview

The Jamaica Bay Crossing isn't a station, but is probably the most interesting feature of the Rockaway Line. There are two swing bridges along the line, referred to as the North Channel Bridge (between Howard Beach and Broad Channel), and the South Channel Bridge (between Broad Channel and Hammels Wye). The intrepid railfan can find good views of the crossing if they venture out from Howard Beach (at the foot of 104th Street) or Broad Channel (at the foot of Lanark Road).
