Sotheby's is set to auction off one of the earliest known photographs of new york city. It is believed to have been taken in 1848 and is believed to be a photo of an estate somewhere in Manhattan's upper west side

Was the elevated rail that can be seen on the left side of the picture a commuter line, or a part of the subway system? Why is the line not operated anymore?
