To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Myrtle Avenue Elevated (El), we will venture along the El's route, the current M and J lines. A major commuter train constructed to connect the residents of Ridgewood and surrounding communities to the business hubs of Downtown Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan, the Myrtle Avenue Elevated played an important role in accelerating the transition of the surrounding neighborhood from rural to urban life. Our R1-9 cars and BU Gate cars will depart from Delancey/Essex Street in Manhattan, and will travel as far as 111th Street with a stop along the way for lunch on your own, and will return to Delancey/Essex street at 5 pm.
