100 Years Ago In Brooklyn

Recommended Posts

On May 1,1908, the Interborough Rapid Transit Company opened the first subway line to Brooklyn. The stations were Borough Hall, Hoyt Street, Nevins Street and Atlantic Avenue. It would not be until August 23,1920 that the line would be extended to Franklin Avenue and Utica Avenue (Clark Street would open April 15,1919.).
