Walking Tour with the Bowery Boys: Ghosts of the Elevated Railroads

  • Sunday, October 10, 2021

  • Jacob Wrey Mould Fountain (Southern end of City Hall Park)

Join us for a walking tour with the Bowery Boys through Manhattan's long-lost elevated railroad lines!

Train enthusiast Michael Morgenthal will guide us along former downtown sections of the 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue Elevated Railroads, as well as the trains that ran across the Brooklyn Bridge until 1940. This tour will travel through lower Manhattan, Chinatown and the Lower East Side, identifying and examining the remains of former railroads and discussing the problems that the "Els" helped solve, and those they caused, from their inception in 1867 to their final razing in 1955.

More information about the walking tour can be found on the Bowery Boys website.

Registration for this event is required. Walking tour capacity is for 15 registrants, but please contact us at programming@nycarchivists.org if you'd like to be added to a waitlist after registration closes.
