Review of The Third Avenue El DVD Sunday River

The Third Avenue El trolley line ran high in the sky at blistering speeds from Gun Hill Road to City Hall. With every stop identified, the outstanding filmwork by Frank Pfuhler, Jr. shows four run pasts in, on, and over the great double track, double deck cantilever swing span across the Harlem River, each with all four 90 degree turns. The gingerbread fretwork, Hansel & Gretel wrought iron, mandala-stained glass windows, and pot-bellied stoves are captured with exquisite stills by Lothar Stelter. Let the express train speeds lift you out of your seat or settle back to enjoy all the things that made the Third Avenue El the most beloved, most exhilarating, and most hated of all forms of New York City transportation.
