Re: Guess the Location...With a High Wire Act!

Well, I waited to see WHO would find the location -- but I KNOW exactly where it is. Should I reveal ? Oh well, OK

This view is looking north from E. 96th Street along 2nd Avenue and the demolition of the 2nd Ave El in Manhattan, in late 1940. At the right is the recent former carbarn of the Metropolitan Street Railway Co. streetcars (conduit operated). The streetcars had run under the 2nd Ave EL. The carbarn is located (or was) between E.96th to E. 97th Street, and heads east one whole block to 1st Avenue. In distance is seen the E. 99th Street local station of the EL. The EL started to rise high around E. 89th Street and continued that way towards 99th street and a bit beyond..

Well, this should end this Guess the Location !
