As we travel east along Borden Avenue, we come up to a Long Island Railroad trestle that carries the Montauk cutoff over the avenue.  The Montauk cutoff connects the Long Island Railroad's Montauk Branch to the railroad's mainline, located north of this area.  The cutoff isn't used as much today as it was during the railroads glory days.

The trestle is quite old.  The Eye in the Sky is supposedly watching everyone who sets foot in the area.
