UPDATE (09.10.2020): Post updated with a new recommendation for the Queens Boulevard subway.
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 (03.22.2020): Post updated with alternative alignments for the Concourse extension.
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 extensions of the Concourse and Pelham lines to Co-op City.
UPDATE (03.16.2020): Post substantially revised to include four new options for SAS Phase 2!
Welcome to my ongoing NYTIP series! In the next series of posts, I will expound on point 2 in my three-point plan to fix the NYC Subway – extend. I’ll begin with Phase 2 of the Second Avenue Subway (SAS) and rail service to LaGuardia Airport. The current plans fall short, so allow me to discuss a better way.
[let’s do this!]

UPDATE (11.03.2019): Post revised for clarity. Some images updated.
Welcome back to my ongoing series on the New York Transportation Improvement Plan (NYTIP)! When I introduced NYTIP, I outlined a three-point plan for fixing the NYC Subway system: enhance, extend, and expand. This post summarizes the last five posts, which addressed the first point – enhance.
UPDATE (10.29.2019): Post revised for clarity. 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!
