UPDATE (12.07.2020): Post updated with modified recommendations.
Welcome to my ongoing NYTIP series! Recall my three-point plan to fix the NYC Subway – enhance, extend, and expand. Though I started talking about subway extensions recently, I’m circling back to point one – enhance – to address some low-hanging fruit.
[taste and see!]
UPDATE (11.19.2020): Post updated with a new proposal for Co-op City North. Some images updated.
Welcome back to my ongoing NYTIP series! In my last post, I began expounding on point 2 in the three-point plan to fix the NYC Subway – extend – with SAS Phase 2X and an Astoria line extension to LaGuardia Airport. In this post, I will discuss subway extensions to Co-op City.
UPDATE (11.18.2020): Post revised with a new option.
Welcome back to my ongoing series on the New York Transportation Improvement Plan (NYTIP)! In my last post, I discussed the Eastern Parkway trunk line served by the 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines in Brooklyn. In this post, I will discuss the 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines in Manhattan and The Bronx, and explain why de-interlining is extremely challenging.
UPDATE (12.06.2020): Post substantially revised to clarify available options for the CPW de-interlining. Some images updated. New images added.
In my last post, I introduced the New York Transportation Improvement Plan (NYTIP). In that post, I outlined a three-point plan for fixing the NYC Subway:
- Enhance (minimize merging conflicts)
- Extend (extend existing lines)
- Expand (build new lines)
Regarding point 1 (enhance), I’ll begin with the Central Park West (CPW) trunk line, which serves the A, B, C, and D trains.
Over the years, I’ve given much though to what The Bronx’s historic Grand Concourse would look like after getting the Complete Streets treatment. As NYC DOT’s plans don’t go nearly far enough, I decided to flesh out some ideas using Streetmix!
