Late last week Flavor Wire ventured into “Unknown Brooklyn,” which, as Sheepshead Bites put it, is “almost exclusively Southern Brooklyn.” There are some great photos of Sea Gate, Bush Terminal, Calvert Vaux Park, Floyd Bennet Field and the mansions of Mill Basin. News to us was the existence of abandoned Long Island Railroad tracks in Midwood, pictured above. The line actually runs from Bay Ridge through a big part of the borough all the way into Queens. Do readers have any favorite “unknown” spots that the essay doesn’t mention?
