From WoD Gotham
Neighborhood: Hell's Kitchen
Address: W30th-43rd and 7th to the Hudson River
Sandwiched between Penn Station and the Hudson River is a rail-yard that spreads over and under at least 26 acres of dilapidated West Side real estate. Rail cars from various eras of the MTA rail system dot the rusted out tracks are in various states of disrepair. The yard is honeycombed with maintenance tunnel entrances along with the main access tunnels into the subway system below the city. Finding the occasional squatter seeking shelter in the abandon cars, one can discover glimpses of the vast underground culture that permeates through the city. However, few actually venture far enough to understand the extent of the plight of those hardest hit by Gotham’s gentrification.
