For a limited time, a vintage trolley car will be on display at the Red Hook Stores building on the Red Hook Waterfront. This particular trolley car is known as a PCC (President’s Conference Committee) car. Commissioned by the Electric Railway President’s Conference in 1929, the PCC was designed to compete against the automotive bus. Addressing rider complaints about about trolleys — too slow, noisy, and uncomfortable — the PCC was an attempt at creating a sleeker, more modern car.
