Red Hook, Brooklyn - Fairway Market Streetcars

The new Fairway Market in Red Hook, Brooklyn is a wonderful addition to a borough that does not have enough good food markets. Behind the market, there is an outdoor cafe where you can eat by the water, right by the Statue of Liberty. But you also see three old streetcars. You might think that they're old Brooklyn streecars, but actually they're from Boston. ( Saw an old "T" sticker in one ) I believe that someone in Red Hook had the dream to bring back streetcar service to Brooklyn. Ain't gonna happen. This streetcar has truly reached the end of the line.
