December 31, 1965, while living in Brooklyn, we were apprised that a massive transit strike was looming. At that time, I depended on the Brighton Beach line, to take me from Avenue H, to 23rd St., in Manhattan. After the strike started (it was bitterly cold), I was pleasantly surprised to see how friendly motorists were to pedestrians who were hitching rides into Manhattan. I was even able to hitch rides back to Brooklyn. The strike lasted twelve days, but we all survived. Does anybody have any recollection of their commute to and from Brooklyn, at that time?
