Many people in Borough Park do not know that before there was a trolley bus on 16 th Avenue, there was a regular streetcar line that was a branch of the Church Avenue Line. The 16 th Avenue Streetcar did not run on Cortelyou Road but ran on McDonald Avenue to Church Avenue, turned east and ran to about Utica Avenue. Original street trackage diagrams are from B. Linder's maps of the McDonald Avenue Line (1979).
