  1. You're right, but I don't know, but they look more like subway grates. They're right at the curb and they're on both sides of the street directly across from one another. But hey, maybe it's Con Edison or some other utility company. First thing that popped up in my head was the subway on 2nd Ave.
  2. Yesterday I was walking on 116th Street. I noticed subway grates in the sidewalk between 1st and 2nd Avenues. If the subway was supposed to be under 2nd Avenue, why would there be gratings between the block?
  3. At Parsons and Archer, I just spotted 3881 with MTV depot stickers on the Q83, any clue on what that's about?
  4. The station once had a full length mezzanine. The 4 removed staircases led to an exit between 124th and 125th Streets. I'm not sure if there was a staircase on west side of St. Nicholas Ave, but there was one on the east side. If you're ever in the area you'll see a Nine West store. A staircase used to be at that spot. IIRC it was removed in the late 80s or early 90s. I remember seeing it when I was a kid, but it was always blocked off and it reeked of urine. That part of the mezzanine is now used as flagging quarters.
  5. You know, years back, I had to have been about 13 or 14, I came up with a plan just like that. And I was bored that day, but took the time to write it down. I suggested Manhattan routes would be 1-99, The Bronx 100s, Brooklyn 200s, Queens 300s, S.I 400s and all express routes MTA and PBL 500s & 600s. Thinking that it would lead to a lot of confusion, I scrapped the idea. IDK...would something like that actually work in NYC???
  6. I remember when... The M3 ran on Convent Av The M60 terminated at 125/Lenox You needed a Rapid Transit student pass to ride the Bx55 The 9000 series buses weren't RTS's, but Flxibles The back doors of RTS's didn't have tape strips...you really had to push em open The Q84 was the Q4A and went to 169/Hillside Alcoa rims Grummans on the Bx29 (now the Bx15) The B46 went to Riis Beach The O5 was new and had 5 digits (BTW does anyone have any pics of that?) The QT from Queensbridge to LGA The Q99 Jamaica Link Shuttle The M103 on 59 Street The M4 ran on Riverside Drive The X23/X90 from 110th & 5th Avenue TA RTS's had sealed tinted windows and white interiors
  7. I was riding the SEPTA Trenton line from North Philly to Trenton 2 days ago and a curiousity dawned on me. How do the engineers know where to stop their train in a station if the are no markers?
