South 4th St at Marcy Ave, Williamsburg view E 2014
This has to be at South 4th St and Marcy Ave in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn (zip 11211). In a few blocks the car will arrive at the Williamsburg Bridge Plaza. Metropolitan cars left Metropolitan Ave. at the English Kills drawbridge, then ran on Grand St, Marcy Ave, South 4th., and Havemeyer St. to the Plaza. The view is looking east on  South 4th St. None of the buildings in the old picture survive, as an expressway (The BQE- Brooklyn Queens Expressway -  I-295) slashes through the area now. The Carlo truck is where the streetcar had been.

 

Note the two signs in the overhead; standard feature of B&QT lines. One says "Section Break - Shut off Power". This is to avoid arcing and burning the insulator. The other says "Cars Will not Pass on This Curve".  A lot of trackwork at intersections had been laid out when cars were shorter and narrower at the corners; cars like the 8000's would not clear at curves like at this.   In some cases (like this?) the streets were too narrow to permit realigning the tracks.    

The silver and green paint scheme which came in about 1947, and the abandonment of the Metropolitan Ave line on Jun 12, 1949 bracket the date.

Fast forward 13 years and we see a rather unusual view taken at the same venue:  the experimental GTE cars as a 4-car train laying up at the same hospital station on a raw November's evening in 1977.  The cars are all lit up, headlights are on, door markers are lit and the cars appear ready to depart this locale. Note the Department of Transportation logo on the front door of the lead car. Photographer unidentified, Dave Keller+ archive
