Astoria Line No.1 - Coming + Going
It's afternoon rush hour in Long Island City, Queens, NYC, just west of the bi-level elevated Queensboro Plaza
Station, as two ten-car R160 Astoria Line trains pass on their respective inbound and outbound track levels.
On the lower track, a downtown N train bound for Manhattan and Brooklyn, having departed the lower level of Queensboro Plaza a few moments ago, is heading for the ramp along the north side of the Queensboro Bridge,
which will take it into the 60th Street Tunnel, under the East River.
The train on the upper level is an uptown N (or W). After stopping at Queensboro Plaza, it will continue on elevated structures high above the street grid of Queens Plaza (*), then swing north to make the six-stop journey to Astoria/Ditmars Boulevard Station.(**)
