New York and Atlantic Railways (NYA) will move their train repair facility out of Glendale by the end of the month.
Currently, NYA operates it’s train repair facility out of Fresh Pond Yards, but they will move to a non-residential area of East New York, Brooklyn. The noisy repairs, which consist of hammering, drilling, welding, and other loud machinery, include everything from changing wheels and brake shoes, fixing mechanical problems and repainting identifying letters and numbers.
“NYA’s plan to transfer its repair operations is good news for Glendale residents who have long been plagued by noise caused by these rail car repairs,” said Congresswoman Grace Meng. “I thank NYA for making this decision. I look forward to building on this positive development, and working further with company officials to address other train-related issues that impact the community.”
