Re: 2 photos of the Park St (Ave) el in Brooklyn

> A provision was made for a proposed street to cross UNDER the bridge stone approach walls. Its old stone approach walls were separated by an original steel beams short bridge providing a space for a planned street to pass below it at the intersection of Fulton St, Prospect Street and Henry Street, that underpass street which was never built -- that short steel original span exists today. You can plainly see it here in this Google View looking towards the East River along Fulton Street along the south side of the Brooklyn Bridge approach.

That is not a provision for a future street, but rather the former location of Main Street, which began at Fulton & Prospect Streets, and which was removed between Fulton and Front Streets with the construction of the BQE. York Street also had an underpass beneath the Brooklyn Bridge, but that was repurposed to contain the BQE.
