New York Connecting Railroad Society, Inc.

The New York Connecting Railroad (NYCR) Society was founded in 1993 by Nicholas Kalis a former resident of Woodside, Queens in New York City. Nick was joined by a handful of other ex-New Yorkers in the mid-1990s, mostly former Queens residents. The Society’s goal is to preserve the history and memory of this scant 10 mile property that formed a vital link in the northeast rail network from World War I to the present day.

The NYCR extended from Port Morris crossing in the Bronx, just south of Oak Point Yard, to Fremont Tower at Fresh Pond Junction in Glendale Queens. A 0.9 mile segment connected the route over the mighty Hell Gate (aka East River Arch) Bridge to the Pennsylvania Railroads Sunnyside Yards in Long Island City. A branch extended from Fresh Pond to Brooklyn, terminating at the 60th Street Float Bridges. The NYCR was jointly owned by the PRR and the New Haven Railroad, and was operated exclusively by the latter.
