Fifth Avenue El in Brooklyn - North Section - 1932-1940

Source:  B. Linder, New York Division Bulletin, Vol. 42, No. 12, December, 1999, Page 2.
In my last several posts, I wrote about the Third Avenue El in Manhattan.  The Third Avenue El on its' route to South Ferry passed underneath the Brooklyn Bridge.  The Brooklyn Bridge carried many Brooklyn Elevated lines, of which the Fifth Avenue Line is one of them.  The elevateds that ran over the Brooklyn Bridge ran to Park Row where passengers transferred to the City Hall Station of the Third Avenue El. In the map section shown, you can see the track layout at the Park Row Station.  The Fifth Avenue El was a two track el that never got upgraded somewhat.  It is interesting to note that that a branch of the Fifth Avenue El ran on Third Avenue in Brooklyn.  You can say that in New York City, there were two 3rd Avenue Els, in Brooklyn and Manhattan.  More to follow when I post the south section of the FIFTH AVENUE EL..
