New York City Elevated Trains: Part 1 and 2

Recommended Posts

This is what I am really keen on. Are those lines still around? I want to see as much of the elevated sections as I can when I visit NY. Are there any plans to dismantle the existing lines?

Unfortunately many of the elevated lines like the Polo Grounds Shuttle, Myrtle El, and Fulton El were closed. Only a small portion of the Fulton El survives and is part of the subway for the (A). The southern section of the Myrtle El was demolished while the northern section is still used by regular subway trains. The Polo Grounds Shuttle only two stations survive both of which are in ruins. By the way everyone here is the full video.

I think it is a shame that they destroy what seems to me to be an impressive system. I am sure that with regular maintenance the elevated railways could run for many many years.
