    According to Google Maps, the building on the left is still there. (It’s now a teriyaki restaurant instead of a burger joint.)

    More amazingly, it looks like the tracks (or at least the grooves for them) are still in the pavement, which now appears to be a short dead end alley, and there are monuments of sorts in the pavement marking the wye that led onto Bimini Place.
