    The MTA has already completed a DEIS and study to bring MN's NH and Hudson lines into PS once ESA is completed. They settled for three new stations in The Bronx on the NH and 125 st and 59th St on...

    What you propose for GCT is also known as the Upper Level Loop Alternative. Under that scenario LIRR would use part of GCT Upper Level instead of the super-expensive Deep Bore new level underneath...

    I would only let AirTrain hybrids run on the A Line not the LIRR. Running just 3-4 (no LIRR) AirTrains an hour wouldn't overtax the existing tunnel. The A/C would stay the same. The LIRR Atlantic...

    I still don't understand why one has to wait for a new tunnel to Lower Manhattan to have AirTrain go there. If they build an inexpensive connection from the AirTrain terminal at Howard Beach to the...

    You are right. Continuing north to JC and Hoboken would indeed better serve its mission as a "belt" line. Do you think travellers would be better served by making it start around Mt. Vernon and then...

    I may be wrong on this but when they first opened AirTrain JFK they said something to the effect that the system was built to one day accomodate the possibility to have AirTrain service continue over...

    Agreed. However I don't understand why a new tunnel needs to be built for Downtown-JFK access. One can run 3-4 Airtrains an hour along the 8th avenue trunk line (A/C/E) on the express tracks from...

    I like Nimbykiller's idea of a "commuter belt". It could dovetail nicely with future MNR service to Penn Station once East Side Access frees up space at those platforms. By using it as a commuter...

    I love it. The 125th St segment could be done concurrently with the 2nd Av Subway which is slated to end at 125st/Lex Ave. Nice use of the Hell Gate and Triboro Bridge. If the Grand Central Parkway...

    I guess the 11th Ave. Subway (EAS) would be the most logical name for it. A line from 79th to 23rd St and then on to the existing "L" terminus at 8th Ave. and 14th St. would be great to complement...

    "L" Train extension

    Is there any plan to extend the L west to the Hudson and then north to 34th St and beyond in conjuction with the "7" train's extension west and south down 11th Av? Now would be a good time to do it....

    thanx for the great research. I hadn't been to Alexander's since the '80s and always wondered when it closed down.

    Thanx for the great pix. Summers at Astoria Pool and Astoria Park will always have a special place in my heart.

    thanx. I always thought that entrance/exit was great. More buildings should do it where feasible. How long was Alexander's vacant?
  19. Alexander's

    when did they actually demolish the old Alexander's department store building? Will the new Bloomberg building still have a basement subway entrance on the Lex like Alexander's did?

    The N line could be extended over the Hell Gate Bridge from Ditmars Blvd to The Bronx and run along Amtrak's ROW. Randall/Wards Island would finally get a stop in the process. I think it's worthy.
