BROOKLYN - Two men have been found dead on Long Island Rail Road tracks in Borough Park. 

Officials say the bodies were discovered at 15th Avenue and 61st Street, which is a mostly industrial area. No MTA passenger trains use the tracks there, only freight trains. 

Nearby residents say they believe between five and 10 homeless people live where police are conducting their investigation. 

It's unclear at this time whether foul play is suspected. The medical examiner will determine the causes of death.
