Grand Central Parkway sweeps through Jamaica Hill. 1939


Unique as a "city" is Jamaica. Though it has over 175,000 people and would be well known if located somewhere in the Rockies, here it is only a small part of a borough of the City of Greater New York. It ranks fourth among American railroad centers in passengers hauled. Besides enormous motor traffic, it is served by 751 daily railroad trains.
