Welcome to my ongoing NYTIP series! Recall my three-point plan to fix the NYC Subway – enhance, extend, and expand. In this post, I will address “low-hanging fruit” opportunities to enhance the NYC Subway.
[taste and see!]
UPDATE (06.28.2021): Post updated with a new extension option and revised commentary.
Welcome back to my ongoing NYTIP series! In my last post, I began expounding on point two in my 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 (09.13.2021): New image added. In a previous update, I substantially revised this post for clarity.
Welcome back to my ongoing NYTIP series! In my last post, I discussed the Eastern Parkway trunk line in Brooklyn served by the 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines. In this post, I will discuss the 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines in Upper Manhattan and The Bronx, and explain why de-interlining is extremely challenging.
UPDATE (08.26.2021): Post revised for clarity.
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)
I’ll begin my series on point 1 – enhance – 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!
