RFW of the 9th Avenue El in 1900!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Nice elevated line coverage, I wondered if the Els in the Bronx and Manhattan that were torn down would still have existed today?

It will be awesome! I could ride the Second Avenue el to school and maybe hop on the Bx26 after that. My girl lives on what used to be Suicide Curve. So it would be cool to ride past her window and wave to her.

I too would have loved it if the els still reigned supreme. Their demolition was an intricate crime of unreasonable vendetta committed by the city against the old Private Operators, as the els were not replaced, and people were thus deprived of transit opportunities. I'm pretty sure taht a sucessful court case against the city/MTA could be built upon that notion. Look at the IND lines. They weren't built into brand new areas where trains never ran before. they were all built under or near exisiting elevated lines. Is that progress?

Except the Crosstown line.
