  1. Thank you for this new dutiful thread!
  2. Yes, since from COVID emergency the overnight frequency on the 2 late night lines of the PATH are 40 minutes and 2 stations are closed (9th Street and 23rd Street) 12-5am: https://www.nj.com/hudson/2020/05/2-path-stations-in-nyc-to-shut-down-overnight-for-remainder-of-covid-19-emergency.html
  3. On page 155 of (http://web.mta.info/mta/investor/pdf/2020/2019_CAFR_Final.pdf) there is an interesting table of the MTA and there is written that the route length of the NYC subway is 248 miles. 1) But why until 2014 there were 246 subway route miles (NYC subway+Staten Island Railroad) and since 2015 (before 2017 expansions of the 7 and Q lines) they are 259? 2) Is it possible to know how many exact rail route mails has the NY subway? I know that they were 245 miles before expansions of the 7 line (1,5 miles) and the Q line (1,8 miles), therefore the total should be 248,3 miles (399,600 km). We know that the new 1,8 mile tunnel extends under Second Avenue from 63rd Street to 96th Street (https://www.wsp.com/en-SE/insights/new-york-opens-its-second-avenue-subway). But since 2017 it is in operation also a new small segment under the Central Park from 57St -7Th Av station to Lexington Av-63St station. What is the lenght of this tract without calculation the very small part that overlaps with the F line? If it is at least 0,3 miles, the new total should be 248,6 miles and therefore OVER 400 km. Thank you for the possible reply and excuse me for my incorrect English.

  5. Over 500 ghost trains run every night between 1am and 5am only for cops and transit workers, but above all because there is not enough space in the system to store all trains simultaneously, and so that they can easily resume service at 5 am.
  6. Ok, I just though that for many New Yorkers the 24/7 subway service was very important and that this situation was an injustice. But if there are these reactions and even insults, I'll stop writing about this.
  7. After De Blasio, Cuomo and Foye, also Sarah Feinberg says that the 24/7 subway service will be restored. But when???? http://www.mta.info/press-release/nyc-transit/transcript-nyc-transit-interim-president-feinberg-appears-live-fox-5’-good http://www.mta.info/press-release/nyc-transit/transcript-nyc-transit-interim-president-feinberg-appears-live-wcbs
  8. It should be the stupidies thing in the world: to punish over 100.000 riders that every weeknight (1-5AM) take the subway since 1904 for some poor homeless. Ridicolous and ABSOLUTELY wrong. To stop Trump, but to stop also this delusional Cuomo.....That enough. NY is a 24/7 city!!
  9. But wouldn't it be better to restore the 24/7 subway service ALSO for the riders (the overnight service has never stopped, but not for the riders...)?
  10. My curiosity: after almost 100 days of overnight shutdown, every night (1-5AM) are there still the cops in every entrance of the 472 NYC stations?
  11. Finally!!!! https://nyc.streetsblog.org/2020/06/29/gov-cuomo-guarantees-24-7-subway-service-will-return-sort-of/
  12. YEEEES!!!! https://nyc.streetsblog.org/2020/06/29/gov-cuomo-guarantees-24-7-subway-service-will-return-sort-of/?fbclid=IwAR2HozglPv4ZblmLtnn3BDTMTLo8Wnr3P1_8vLp_2Sf4zHBq4qDFawJULYs
  13. If the 24/7 subway service will be eliminated, NYC will become a city like many other cities and it will no longer be my favourite city in the world.
  14. I am Italian and honestly I think that since last April 30 no person in the world protested like me against this ridicolous situation. I have written on facebook, twitter, I have commented on every forum, I have sent emails and twitt to Cuomo, De Blasio, NY senators, NYC councilman, NY transit advocates, the NY Mayor Nightlife Palitz etc EVERY SINGLE DAY for 2 months. In my opinion the only 3 persons which TRULY realize the risk to lose this service after 116 years (139 counting the Eleveted Railway) are: senator Brad Hoylman, Danny Pearlstein of Alliance Riders and the councilman Ydanis Rodriguez. I have realized that many New Yorkers are having enormous problems with overnight buses and some are spending also 45$ every night for taxis, but you don't see these news on the NY newpapers..... I am 100% agree with you that it is a SHAME that in the city that never sleeps the vast majority of the population doesn't understand that cleaning and homeless are ONLY 2 SHABBY EXCUSES to eliminate this fantastic and historical service. After 2 months I still not seeing a true protest, a petion online and even on this site every time that I say something without this stupid decision I get negative answers above all I am Italian. Every time that I ask when will restored the 24/7 subway service on twitter Sarah Feinberg or ot the MTA members (Abbey Collins, Tim Minton etc) don't reply me and they EVER SAY that the subway never has been clearer than now........ But why no New Yorker realizes that is ABSOLTELY OBVIOUS that if you have ONLY 10% or 15% of the normal ridership it is ABSOLUTELY NORMAL that the subway is cleaner? This is ONLY 1 simple example of the my alone battle to save the 24/7 subway service: My email to concilman Rodriguez ( June 18): URGENT: 24/7 subway service for phase 2!! Dear councilman I have much valued your great commitment for the immediate recovery of 24/7 subway service and I thank you for it. But I also think that it has been too late for the phase 1 and above all I noted that it has had little attention in the media ( http://bronx.news12.com/story/42222535/council-member-rodriguez-calls-for-subway-to-be-open-during-overnight-cleanings and https://www.harlemworldmagazine.com/uptown-transportation-chairman-rodriguez-calls-on-mta-to-reopen-subways/). In fact no news in the NYT, NY Post, NY Daily News etc. It is absurd that EL CTA Chicago, Patco Philadelphia, PATH NY/NJ and SIR NY Staten Island in USA, but also S Bahn Frankfurt and S Bahn Koln haven't stopped their 24/7 service, while the CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS since May 6 hasn't a late night subway service after 116 years, but even after 139 years also counting the old Manhattan Railway(Elevated) Company which started the 24/7 service in 1881!!! And in NYC, unlike these other cities, over 50% of the inhabitants don't own a car..... We know that homeless and cleaning are only a POOR EXCUSE...The subway has over 6.400 trains and you can clean the trains and at the same time to have a normal late night service without problem! Now there is also the UV light pilot program....I am sure that you already know that since May 6 we have a paradoxical situation: it exists a normal 24/7 subway service with a frequency of 20 minutes (included the shuttles), but it does't work for the riders ( https://nypost.com/2020/05/06/why-nyc-ghost-trains-run-during-coronavirus-subway-shutdowns/?utm_source=facebook_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site+buttons&utm_campaign=site+buttons&fbclid=IwAR3OazlQ0acbC8ATMtiwTL5GQUiSShNsF31Vhw0mQ5ouZvAJd-mFBLbNFfo). And about the homeless you know that the lies of the Mayor ( https://nypost.com/2020/05/14/homeless-seen-sleeping-inches-from-each-other-on-shelter-stairs/)..... Cuomo, De Blasio, the MTA and many superficial newspapers say that now the subway is cleaner, but it is ABSOLUTELY OBVIOUS when you have ONLY 10% of riders..... Attention to this strange propaganda..... We must have this FUNDAMENTAL service for many persons (above all for working class, immigrants and poor New Yorkers, but also for thousands of tourists etc) already in the phase 2 and I think that is it ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO JOIN FORCES TO ACHIEVE THE GOAL. I know that the vast majority of the NYC council is absolutely agree with this, but also many NY senators ( https://www.nysenate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/brad-hoylman/senator-hoylman-announces-plans-mandate-full-247-mta-subway) , the NYC NIGHT LIFE MAYOR Miss Ariel Palitz, Riders Alliance, NYPIRG Straphangers Campaign and ABOVE ALL the NYC population have the same opinion! De Blasio, Cuomo, Foye, Feinberg say that the 24 service will return to some point or even after the pandemic..... ATTENTION Mr Rodriguez: if we haven't this service in the next days, we risk no longer have it and this should be the DEATH OF THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS!!! It is NECESSARY RAISE YOUR VOICE and to CONTACT other NYC councilmen and transit advocates!! NOW!! This service after 116 years is at risk. P:S: The last May 7 and the last June 11 and 13 I already wrote you, but you didn't reply me. I hope that this time you will reply me and possibly in a exhaustive manner.... What is the purpose to have an email, if then you don't reply? Thanks.
