Trolley Tracks Down at Red Hook
One day this will become brooklyn's first light rail/streetcar to run in a long time. Bloombergs up to it. The street cars now sit infront of a supermarket on some track. The Brooklyn Historic Railway Association are the people who came up with the idea and went ahead with it, with a small step; laying track around the block. They gave rides until the track was unfortunetly taken away only leaving track behind the supermarket and into the trolley shed. But reccently Bloomberg is backing these guys up. The plan is to have trolleys running from Red Hook to Brooklyn Heights.
