Sedgewick Avenue Station

     If you have read articles about abandoned stations in New York City, you have most likely gotten a laundry list of locations of Manhattan locations, with emphasis on how "spooky" or "creepy" the area is. I'm not going to disagree with that last part, as some of them can get pretty strange, but stations the outer boroughs, such as the Bronx, are for the most part ignored.
     Many many many moons ago, my soon-to-be contact went on an expedition to see if he could locate the abandoned Sedgewick Avenue station. The group went down to some nearby tracks  in hopes that by following them they would reach the station. Transit workers spotted them and they bolted, however, the direction they fled happened to lead them to, you guessed it, the abandoned station. I had heard about this and messaged the person, gaining a very useful contact. He led the way to the station during a sunny winter day, but I came back later in the summer to check out the area again. Here are the photographic results.

Interestingly, this is the only picture I took of the actual station. The remaining pictures explore the surrounding area.

Several blown up cars have been dumped here.
