A Rare Glimpse at the Williamsburg Bridge Railway Terminal

There’s been a lot of buzz about the historic Williamsburg Bridge Railway Terminal lately. A group has proposed to turn the disused trolly terminal into an underground park, nicknamed “The LowLine.” The project has been backed by city officials and thousands of Kickstarter users and is well along the path to making the park a reality.

In its current state, the railway terminal is a hub for graffiti, just like the High Line was before its makeover. It is important for the space to be documented as it is now, before it is lost in time. Luckily, photographer Nelson Wan attended a Transit Museum tour of the disused trolley terminal just last week and was gracious enough to share his awesome photos with us. Enjoy!
