The introduction of the IND subway line in 1936 was to eventually spell the demise of this line. Pitkin Avenue, Looking east from Berriman This early postcard view shows how the original posts did not leave much room for traffic.

El RemovalI've had 2 pictures sent to me by site fans of the el removal along Pitkin Avenue. Now over one hundred years old, the L was created for, and had expanded and declined according to the population of Chicago. As with most of the early train lines, it was constructed by a private company, the Kings County Elevated Railroad Co. Service along the elevated line out to Rockaway Avenue was discontinued in 1940, but the war delayed extension of the subway. On the right, we had a badly damaged negative from 1943 of the view west along Pitkin from Linwood Street in 1943.

The first picture is looking back towards the Chestnut Street Station with a view of the north side of Pitkin Avenue.
In the view on the right, that is Sunrise Highway (Conduit Boulevard) cutting in from behind the gas station.
Less than an hour later, a train carrying 180 passengers passed over this section, causing the tracks to buckle. The view on the left (from Bob Reddington) is by Ashford Street and the one on the right (from Liz Sanford) is Cleveland Street. The first section completed ran from Fulton Ferry to Nostrand Avenue, and opened April 24, 1888. That subway line was extended out to Euclid Avenue, and after creating a connection to the Dual Contracts extension in 1956, the entire elevated section in East New York was redundant.

The war delayed some plans, but by 1948 the subway line had been extended out to Euclid Avenue, and from there the track rises back above ground and connects with the line after Grant Avenue.
The Atlantic Avenue station was rebuilt during the Dual Contracts so this dates closer to 1915.
In East New York, the company did not have rights to the coveted Jamaica Avenue or Fulton Street routes (cemetery visitors were big business for the transportation companies) and was forced to turn south at Snediker Avenue, then east at Pitkin Avenue. The extension into East New York to the Van Siclen Avenue station was completed November 18, 1889.
The Dual Contracts provided for an extension of the line from Grant Avenue out to Lefferts Boulevard in 1915.
