Interesting Picture of Proposed Streetcar Service on Berry Street in Williamsburg Brooklyn
The above picture comes from the "Next City" website and was probably obtained from the group that is trying to establish a Brooklyn - Queens waterfront line. This week we were informed that various streets will be studied for the possible route of this line. Neighborhood feedback will take place in the coming months. Various factors, such as street geometry, isolation from the transit system, catchment areas and so on will be studied. On such route is Berry Street in Brooklyn which is pictured above. What is interesting is not choice of street but that this is the first picture from this project that shows overhead wires. The clamps, or clovis, or insulators that are holding up the wires are also unusual. Perhaps the group may acknowledge that wireless operation may have its' problems or did the artist just compile this picture this way?
