Format: Paperback
This is a fascinating companion book to the previous Arcadia book by Stephen L. Meyers, which covered the long gone streetcars of Manhattan. This new publication covers the trolley lines of New York's borough of Queens which were gone by 1939, as well as the obscure traction properties on Long Island that disappeared during the 1920s. Like other Arcadia books, it is primarily a photo book with sufficient text to accompany the photos and provide historical information. Although some Queens trolley lines were operated into the 1950's by the New York City Transit System, the private companies, such as the New York & Queens County and the Steinway lines, met their demise during the depression years of the 1930s. It is these properties, along with the aforementioned Long Island operations, that Mr. Meyers concentrates on in his book. The photographs are top quality and beautifully reproduced and the well organized text fully complements the many photos.I highly recommend this book to those interested in a fascinating look at these interesting trolley lines. There are few people around these days who remember them and Lost Trolleys of Queens and Long Island will provide an excellent time travel experience into the past.

Unlike it's Brooklyn counterpart "Brooklyn Streetcars (Images of Rail: New York)," written by the staff of the Branford Electric Railway Association, this book doesn't rely as heavily on images an maps, although it certainly has it's share of them. Like that book, unfortunately, it lacks the ability to zoom in on those images, which is something you need when reading with Kindle and it's variants. I already bought a soft copy version of the book before I bought it on Kindle Fire, and I think I'm going to keep it along with my kindle version, if you don't mind.

The concept of a pollution-free transportation system uniting the boroughs has always appealed to me. This book showed projects that were never allowed to grow into fruition
