[WATCH] Vintage Video Shows Atlantic Avenue Tunnel Tour and Red Hook Trolley Ride in 1987

Brooklyn urban explorer and transit enthusiast Bob Diamond is most well-known for rediscovering, exploring, and offering unauthorized tours in, an abandoned subway tunnel under Atlantic Avenue. He has a huge collection of vintage videos that he shares online from time-to-time, and in this one, we get to see an Atlantic Avenue Tunnel tour and Red Hook Trolley ride in 1987.

Back in the mid 90's, we did a video presentation at the MTA Transit Museum, then walked through the historic circa 1844 Atlantic Avenue tunnel, then took the historic "Jackie Gleason Bus" to Red Hook, for a ride on our circa 1897 trolley, the #3.
