Re: Nighttime Shot of 3rd Ave El at 67th Street (1953)

Those stories your Mother told were a bit of living history. Were you able to write any of them down, or at least remember the main details?

I'm sorry to hear about your Mom's memory. I'm glad at 90 you still have her and can visit with her.

A childhood friend and neighbor, his mother grew up in Astoria, and told me her memories of taking the Astoria line to the 2nd ave. el over the bridge when she went into Manhattan with her friends.

In my former apartment complex, we had an elderly Brooklyn woman who remembered 5th ave. el service on the Culver Line. How she described it was 'the trains on the Culver line were different... not like the Brighton.' I asked her what she meant and she said the cars were older and wooden.
