Forgotten NY was the first recipient of the Outstanding NYC Website award by the Guides Association of NYC in March 2015!
Forgotten New York is a program of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, a non-profit organization supported by the Long Island City community.
There had indeed been a Lexington Avenue Line in Brooklyn — an el that shrouded the entire length of the Bedford-Stuyvesant avenue that runs from Grand Avenue east to Broadway. Seen on this 1920s map, the Lexington el split from the Myrtle Avenue El at Grand Avenue and then ran south and east, over Grand and then turning at Grand and heading to another connection with the Myrtle.
In the chronology of Brooklyn els, though, the Myrtle was a Johnny-come-lately, opening for business in 1888. By 1950, ridership had dwindled because of the nearby Myrtle Avenue el and the underground IND GG line subway under Lafayette Avenue, and the el was closed and dismantled. I haven’t been over to that corner for awhile, but with the magic of the Google Photo Truck I can see what it looks like as of 2011.
There would have to be something below them so that the weight of the trains would be transmitted directly to the ground, wouldn’t there?
What had always confused me was that there was a IRT Lexington Avenue Line in Manhattan, and a BMT Lexington Avenue Line in Brooklyn. My personal confusion aside, I do wish they had kept the BMT Myrtle Avenue Line to Jay Street up, and the BMT Lexington Avenue Line up. In the spring of 1950, a friend of mine and I decided to ride the whole NY city subway and elevated system.

It's not uncommon for riders during the morning rush to let an overcrowded L train go on without them.
The chronically overcrowded L train, which connects Manhattan to Brooklyn's fastest growing neighborhoods, is now running 98 more times a week. Brooklyn Democratic District Leader Lincoln Restler, who joined elected officials at a press conference outside the Bedford Avenue stop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, said it's about time.
Ridership on the L train has grown 141 percent since 1998 because of a population boom in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, the chosen enclaves of NYC's hipster set and more recently, a hub of new condo construction. The NY MTA announced a plan to increase service on the line eight months ago, which led to a squabble with its largest union over why the new schedule would take so long to implement. Riders will now see 16 more trains on weekdays and 18 more trains over the course of a weekend. The MTA says, during the morning rush, customers can shave 30 seconds off their wait with trains now arriving every 3 minutes. State Senator Daniel Squadron said those improvements should lessen claustrophobia on the line. The Lex had preceded it by three years, running Forney steam engines from its original termini at Washington and York Streets to Gates Avenue beginning May 13, 1885.
Note that it’s supported on a low garage-type building on Lexington, with a corner store.
The old painted signs are long gone, but two brackets that supported the el are still in place!


I live around the corner from this and a little while ago a fence went up around this building. I used to take my son on the myrtle ave el just for amusement back when we lived in the Marcy Projects.

The NY Metropolitan Transportation Authority just finished installing a new radio-based signal system that allows trains on the line to travel closer together and, as a result, more frequently. It's not unusual for riders during the morning rush to let a packed train pass because there's no room to board it. Non-rush hour weekday riders, as well as Saturday night revelers, can expect a train every six minutes, down from 7 ? minutes. I’m afraid they’re going to be taking it down to build new condos or something! For the 14th year in a row, cheeky commuters dropped their pants to take part in the 'No Pants Subway Ride' in New York City.

Some kind of easement would have had to be granted to the transit company, so that they could be assured of the continuing right to run the trains there. Presumably, they paid the building owner(s) to acquire this, and it was all negotiated and arranged between them as private parties. Instead a conductor with bus type fare box rode on the platform of one of the gate cars coupled back to back in the two car train.
