    Any news regarding this site? I can't think of another lot like this in such a high traffic area that has yet to be built on. Almost all buildings that stalled after the 2008 financial collapse...

    Daquan, why did you post that in this thread? This has nothing to do with the transit center. There is a second avenue subway thread for you to post this in.

    There will be no charge to enter the memorial. The proposed charge would be for entrance into the museum. I see nothing wrong here. If they don't charge anything then New York taxpayers will end...

    But you are disregarding the fact that the capacity of 63rd and Lex will essentially double. The Q and the F won't be using the same tracks. 63rd will be a "new stop" to Q-train riders just as much...

    Saying phase one is "just three new stations" is a bit disingenuous. These three stations are being built in one of the densest areas of the country. These three stations will serve about as many...

    Aren't there laws that require developers to maintain their empty lots? There are mounds of trash behind the fence on 8th Ave. and the wall in front of the building that is still standing is...

    That is the Related site between 45th and 46th. I am talking about the one on the west side of 8th.

    I searched and searched but I can't seem to find the existing thread regarding the stalled construction site across from the Platinum on 8th Ave. between 46th and 47th. The current lot is completely...

    Are they really going to name it Moynihan Station when it is essentially two new entrances to the existing Penn or is that just the project name? Even if "phase 2" is completed they should just call...

    Quite true. The entire east side of the island is thought to be dull. Ironically enough, one of the reasons it has become so dull and suburbanized is the general lack of public transit options.

    The problem is that once the market bounces back, a lame box will most likely still be built here. The only difference will be that the box had been delayed a few years.

    It appears they are breaking up the dark grey part of the blank wall with thin black lines to give it the appearance of tiled panneling. I took a picture but it's hard to see. Either way, they are...
