Postcard Thursday: The Elevated Railway


Earlier this week, James had a story appear in Curbed about the history of New York's elevated railways. Next week marks the 150th anniversary of the first successful run of what would become the Ninth Avenue El.

You can read the full story at https://ny.curbed.com/2018/6/27/17507424/new-york-city-elevated-train-history-transportation

One small detail the story mentions is the "View of St. Paul’s Church and the Broadway stages, N.Y.," by Hugh Reinagle, a painting that illustrated all the different stage coaches that plied Broadway in the 1830s. Since the print itself wasn't able to be included in the story, we've posted it here.

Enjoy the story!
