Info



Fort Wadsworth was a station on the demolished South Beach Branch of the Staten Island Railway, near the historic Fort Wadsworth. It had two side platforms and two tracks, and was located at Fingerboard Road.
This station was abandoned when the SIRT discontinued passenger service on the South Beach Branch to Wentworth Avenue at midnight on March 31, 1953 because of city-operated bus competition.The unused station, overgrown with weeds, remained in place until the 1970s. At this time, the location where the station and tracks previously existed, at what is currently the intersection of Tompkins Avenue and Lyman Avenue in Rosebank/Fort Wadsworth, is now occupied by a collection of town home homes which are of noticeably newer vintage than the surrounding residences. The path of the former track leading to South Beach, at a lower grade, is now occupied by a power substation.
