Railroad crossing!

Train crossing!

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first place between New York and Murray Hill (about an hour out of NYC) on the NJ Transit Morris/Essex line (on the Gladstone branch, anyway) that actually interferes with traffic at all. From here to the City, every traffic crossing involves a bridge over everything or a tunnel under everything.

(For a more in-depth history and 19th-century rail company drama, read the Wikipedia article.)
