 The New York & Long Island Traction Company NY&LIT had 4 principal lines. The original line ran from Brooklyn along Rockaway Boulevard, North Conduit Avenue, Atlantic Avenue and Merrick Road serving Rosedale, Valley Stream,  Lynbrook, Rockville Center, Oceanside, Baldwin and Freeport. Going north out of Freeport, a line served Roosevelt, Hempstead and Garden City. Departing Jamaica Avenue in Queens County, a line went along Hempstead Turnpike to the Belmont Race Track, Elmont, Franklin Square, West Hempstead and joined the northerly line out of Freeport in Hempstead.  The Jamaica Avenue line from Queens County also continued past the junction with Hempstead Turnpike east onto Jericho Turnpike serving Queens Village, Bellerose, Floral Park, New Hyde Park and Mineola. In Mineola, the line went south over the LIRR and connected with the northern line out of Freeport in Garden City. By 1926, the company was out of business.
