Railroad Avenue was the right-of-way for a railroad line that was once located between Surf Avenue and Mermaid Avenue. The Norton's Point trolley ran on this line from the Stillwell Avenue Terminal to Sea Gate until 1948. It was closed off and built over in the 1960s-1970s. There's no longer any trace of this old road. Here's a photo of the old trolley line when it was in operation.
