Ellie's Trolley Adventures
February 4, 2016
When I was a little girl living in Coney Island, Brooklyn - several of the major streets - such as Coney Island Avenue - had trolleys that ran through the borough. I remember the trolleys clearly and enjoyed riding on them to my grandma's house in Brighton Beach among other areas. Eventually the trolleys were removed - the tracks paved over or ripped up - the overhead cables dismantled.
For decades I didn't ride a trolley (cable car) until visiting San Francisco in 2007.
Now Mayor De Blasio wants to bring trolleys back by 2024
linking the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens.
Frankly I think there are better things to do with the money and
the train tracks along the streets are hazardous. Just saying ...
