Norton’s Point Streetcar Shuttle Rides Again… Well, On YouTube

We found this incredible video of the Norton’s Point Shuttle trolley crisscrossing its way through Bay 19th Street to Coney Island. The old streetcar line, abandoned in 1935 and briefly resurrected in June of 1943, offers a glimpse of the old trolley-dodging days that represented the fabric of people’s day-to-day lives in Brooklyn for generations. Pretty amazing to see.

Anyone remember these?

Thanks to Erica, for passing this along.
