I read articles in the Brooklyn Eagle about closing the Lexington Ave el that go back to 1937. During WWII, it was kept to provide service for wartime Navy Yard workers, according to one of them. Also, the City did not have the Money to tear it down, so it lasted through the War. even when it was torn down in 1951, a section carrying power cables, on Grand Ave, between Greene and Myrtle, lasted until Jan, 1953, due to lack of money.
