Downtown Brooklyn Elevated Lines

The Myrtle, Lexington and 5th Ave turned from Myrtle into Adams St. The Fulton St and Brighton Fulton (when it operated) stayed on Fulton. Both had spurs that connected with a private right of way between Fulton and Adams St. The PRW also had a small yard. Today, the Supreme Court stands in the right of way.
