Explore the history of the L train (14th Street Canarsie Local), which runs from 14th Street in Manhattan to Rockaway Parkway in Canarsie, Brooklyn. Discover details about its origins, view archival images of its construction, and learn about the controversies that occurred in bringing the line to fruition. Discover some of the many neighborhoods along the line and how some of them have changed over the years.

 

Join Museum Educator Kate Lanceley to uncover the long history of the 14th Street- Canarsie Local Line, going back to a steam railroad that began operation in 1865, a BRT elevated service that followed in 1906, and an expansion planned under the Dual Contracts in 1913.
