Operating Freight

What were the abandoned buildings by the 7 train?

I am curious to know about the abandoned places that the 7 train passes. the 7 train passes in front of an awesome building full of graffiti, just coming out of the tunnel. But the place looks broken down. What used to be there? A little further after the Queensboro Plaza station, (approaching 33rd street) there is a building with broken windows and appears to have the letter CN engraved.Does anybody know what that place used to be? Thank You!

My friend, the first place you're describing, which is near Court Square subway station is called the 5Pointz, which is an outdoor art exhibition space that is considered to be the world’s premiere “graffiti Mecca.” The building itself use to be a factory.

There is right now an effort among the graffiti artists to save the building and the art works from the development, as Long Island City is seeing a major resurgence and developers are buying up these former factories for future use. I would recommend reading the blog post at the link below, which explains what I'm talking about.

In regards to your second question. the building you're describing with the CN on it, could mean anything. However, I know it dose not stand for the Canadian National Railway, which uses the initials on its locomotives and rolling stocks.

CNR doesn't have facilities in the this part of the country, therefore, they don't operate trains here. CNR operates freight trains mostly in Canada and the Midwestern US.

I hope this information is very helpful.

Good luck
