Question about the R33ML at Queens B. Hall

Recommended Posts

Do they allow people to walk on the platform there for free without permission or you need permission? And im guessing entering the car is only for tour?

 

Thanks!

There is a wooden platform there that you can walk on. I was there in 2006 and the platform wasn't barricaded or anything. As for the train, no one's allowed inside, probably as a security measure.

Oh cool Thanks! Platform isn't locked.. I was there today only to play with cam in Queens and check the r33 but i didn't wanna head on the wooden platform seeing that have NYPD Surveillance around and don't wanna get into trouble for walking on the platform. I will go back tomorrow or when its sunny...

 

But i don't get that last line, if they don't allow people in, why do they have Accessibility button and knob there to enter?

Really? It must be a new addition then, I don't recall seeing that when I was there in 2006. You can take pictures there, the cameras are only there to curb people from doing anything stupid to the train.

Not really. The NYPD Surveillance cameras are all over the place. I have one about 3-5 blocks away on 5th Avenue.

There's one located a block away from me as well. It's one of those surveillance things with a 30' crane. On occasion, I'll see a truck on my corner since I live across the street from project housing (and the cops will drive through them as well). I looked inside the truck one time and all I saw were sleeping cops and the TV on CBS.

I agree 100%! I guess its mostly in the most crime areas?

I've seen a lot. A few at TSQ, 33rd Street, 8th Ave North of the Post office but near B&H, 149th Street- 3rd avenue the hub. And I think one is being installed in my area, though im not so sure, its a few long pipes going to the top with nothing on top.. Near the cross bronx/I95

Yeah, I've seen those. It's not just for the sketchy neighborhoods, it's also for the areas where it's busy at night as well (e.g. Times Square (Mark said this), Herald Square, Grand Central, etc.) to curb people from doing anything stupid. Remember people, big brother is watching! :eek:
