I found this interesting map in my archive. It is a map of Manhattan streetcar routes and does not show the trackwork. Route infomation is interesting for transportation historians. This map, as of 1920, has an interesting table on the right side of map showing the then existing routes and the companies that ran them. From this map, we can see that Manhattan conduit trolleys, such as Grand Street and Brooklyn, Post Office and Brooklyn, Christopher Street Ferry, 7th Avenue and Brooklyn and 14th Street Crosstown routes used conduit trackage over the Williamsburgh Bridge to Brooklyn. This is a good research tool. Tramway Null(0)
