"Scary place to get lost at night but close to area gems"

I took the wrong exit off of the LIE and somehow found myself here on Borden Ave. Very dark, very scary. Pretty much just a bunch of warehouses, parking lots, and the LIE overhead. But it's not far from the Chocolate Factory theatre on 49th Ave, The Laguardia Performing Arts Center on Thompson Ave, and the Farmers Market on 48th Ave. It's also just a 10 minute drive to the Queens Center Mall on Queens Blvd.

"Wouldn't wanna be down here at night..."

Basically a service road that runs next to the rail yards and then under the LIE.. Not much to say about it, no nightlife restaurants or anything like that. no reason to really be here unless you are dumping a body or trying to find the LIE.
