3rd Ave. El – 1950’s


What is a 3rd Ave. El?

It’s the that used to run up and down until the mid-1950’s, when it was decommissioned and turned into scrap metal.

Despite this, you can still experience the trip through that vanished over half-a-century ago, not only from the overhead view of the window, but through the actual neighborhoods and with the authentic people who road it daily.

A photographer with a tripod, a stumbling from the old Bowery, a giddy little girl traveling with her father, and a couple on a romantic excursion help create a loose narrative.

For the soundtrack, a sprightly rendition of Haydn’s Concerto in D for Harpsichord is accompanied by all of the real sounds of a metropolitan elevated trip. Along with it’s superb and creative editing, a viewing of ‘’ is like taking a ten minute vacation to a place that is no more.
