Between 1888 and 1940, Brooklyn’s fleet of trolleys connected the growing residential community to the commercial hub in Downtown Brooklyn. The Fulton Street, Coney Island, Dekalb Avenue, and Flatbush Avenue lines navigated the borough to bring workers and residents to the area. This extensive transportation network helped Brooklyn establish itself as an influential American city, a distinction we have never lost.
On Saturdays this holiday season, take a ride on the Downtown Brooklyn Holiday Trolley, enjoy the holiday lights and shopping, and let our experienced guides share with you our borough’s history along the way.
I can’t wait to do this. The route and timetable are here; care to join me?
