The above photo was taken from YIMBY, a New York real estate website. The source is S9 Architecture. If completed, this 40 story tower will be the tallest residential tower in the southern part of Brooklyn near the Atlantic Ocean. I posted this story before, but what is interesting for rapid transit fans is the rendering of the Culver El in the foreground. Although built during the "Dual Contracts" period of around 1919-20, this section of elevated structure is not similar to other el structures built during this time and along the same line, but consisted of parts supposedly from the reconstruction of the Fulton Street Elevated Line in another part of Brooklyn. So we may say that old meets new in this picture. This is near the Neptune Avenue stop on the "F", Culver El. This area is so very rich in rapid transit history.
