This is an E1 to Windsor Place, and did you know, I’m almost 4 years old? (This lucky kid is named Eli, and his dad is a brilliant cardboard artist who whipped this up for Eli’s halloween costume. We spotted him on 8th St. in Gowanus, but the route probably changes every day).
We’ll be adding this bus to our routing options ;)

An elephant falling out of a suspension railway car in Wuppertal, Germany (1950).
The Althoff Circus organised a publicity stunt by putting a baby elephant on the floating train at Alter Markt station. As the elephant started to bump around during the ride, she was pushed out the wagon and she fell into the river Wupper. The elephant, two journalists, and one passenger received minor injuries. After this jump, the elephant got the name of Tuffi, meaning ‘waterdive’ in Italian. Both operator and circus director were fined after the incident. - wikipedia
