Flynn’s Crossing, also called See Crossing and Irish Crossing, was a name for the neighborhood north of Pleasantdale and Campbell’s Crossing and west of Speigletown around where the Troy and Boston Railroad track had crossed Irish Road in the Thieves Hollow area, north of where the Pleasantdale Rod & Gun Club now is.
Given that the crossing itself was at-grade, there were several bad accidents at it.
