Throwback Thursday: A Ride Along The El Train As It Approaches Sunset Park

How cool is this black-and-white video, of a ride along the El[evated] line from Manhattan into Brooklyn, past Fulton Street and then the 5th Avenue Bay Ridge line, through Sunset Park?

Fast forward to the 8:20 mark in the video, as the train approaches Green-Wood Cemetery. There’s even narration by the late transit historian Roger Arcara.

A thank you to reader Linda Krekey for bringing this video to our attention!
