Sheepshead Bay Race Track Aerial View (Full) 1924

Here is a full view of the Sheepshead Bay Race Track pathway that was still visible in this 1924 aerial picture.  The long line on the left is Ocean Avenue. The area to the east of the former race track is Marine Park.  From this picture, it appears to me that the Sheepshead Bay Race Track may be larger than the Gravesend Race Track.  Rapid Transit service to the race track approached from the west at Ocean Avenue from the BRT Brighton Line and the LIRR Manhattan Beach branch and the Ocean Avenue Trolley.  (See prior posts)


  1. There was a rail connection from the Brighton Line tracks and, I think, the two tracks immediately to the east. This explains why Avenue X does not cross under the Brighton Line. There is still an underpass for the southbound connection track.

    1. Thanks for your comments. I remember in the 1970's a curved pathway lined in concrete east of the Brighton PRW in the area. This site has since been developed. Thanks, Tramway Null(0).
