The exhibition 'Elevated City: A History of the Els in New York' takes a retrospective look at New York City's first mass transportation rail lines, from their birth to their demise. Elevated rail lines of the 1800s enabled people to travel beyond their immediate neighborhoods. With a newfound freedom to travel and escape the surly bounds of lower Manhattan, this "commuter class" of city residents established new communities outside Manhattan throughout the spacious outer boroughs.
