I vaguely remember them around Church Ave and Flatbush Ave if my memory is correct. As a kid I was awed by the crackle that emanated from the wires and I worried about them becoming disconnected from the overhead wires.
Maybe not directly related to this is the story of a bus accident in Brooklyn in front of a bar. Some of the bar patrons ran out and jumped on the bus and held their necks and groaned hoping to get some recompense. I don't know if that is just an urban legend or whether it actually happened. It actually is easy to think it very well could have happened in Brooklyn.
