Farewell to the El: Nostalgia for the Third Avenue Elevated Train

Brooklyn, United States

$10 / Free for Museum Members
View of Third Avenue with elevated train structures visible

The Third Avenue El – the last elevated train in Manhattan – shut down in May of 1955, but it lived on in the memories of New Yorkers and in popular and high culture. What aesthetic possibilities did filmmakers find in the elevated train stations and cars? How did the El offer a different sense of community and a different perspective on the city? And how does this moment in transit history help us understand contemporary elevated train lines and elevated parks? Join Sunny Stalter-Pace, Associate Professor at Auburn University, to explore the mid-century moment when nostalgia for the El reached its height.
