As I remember, we went to visit one of my mother's siblings, had so much fun visiting and talking that we never got to go on the trolley!
Isn't it amazing what kids remember... I have no memories of being on a Brooklyn trolley, but that doesn't mean that it never happened. My mother used to take me to see the family by public transportation, from Queens to Brooklyn, until just before I turned three and my brother was born.
So this week, as I traveled by bus on Rechov Yaffo I just had to whip out my camera and shoot those pictures, while memories of my almost ride on the Brooklyn Trolley rushed to my mind. As you can see, there's barely enough space on Rechov Yaffo near Machane Yehuda open-air market for the two sets of lightrail tracks. There won't be room for buses at all.
