Heading for Coney Island on the trolley

A school outing? Church picnic? Just some neighborhood mothers and kids seeking a fresh breeze on a hot day?

Whatever the reason, they’re all heading out to get some sea air at Coney Island on June 2, 1913, according to Historic Photos of New York State.

    In fact, the Coney Island Avenue trolley line was the last line running in Brooklyn before all the trolleys were taken out of service in the mid-1950s. The line over the Manhattan Bridge ran for a little while longer.

    Who remembers the shot-lived trolley buses?
