Elevated subway track

Elevated subway track
A portion of the MTA route 7 is elevated in Queens. 23rd Street at 45th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. The Court Square station is just beyond 45th Avenue.

Street names in Queens are very confusing to outsiders because in Manhattan, all avenues go north and south (1st, 5th, Park, Lexington etc.) where streets go east and west (West 47th Street West, East 14th Street etc.)

But in Queens, the avenues go east and west and the streets go north and south (both are opposite of Manhattan), plus in Manhattan there would be only one First Avenue, one Fifth Avenue and one 23rd Steet and one 96th Street, but in Queens, there are 44th Road, 44th Drive, and 44th Avenue, all parallel to each other!
