  1. The recently announced that they were inspecting all elevated structures after the incident on the . Simply put it, the workers are just making sure things are in shape and removing anything that can be hazardous to the cars and people below.
  2. The original 33rd Street terminal on the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad was there before the subway line on Broadway was built.
  3. I know, but I meant before that connection at South Ferry existed.
  4. At Rector Street where Trinity Street intersects Morris Street and an off ramp from the tunnel, you can see the entrances to the train stop and the / stop across the street from each other. And I've been wondering "why wasn't a transfer built here?"
  5. Total facepalm on this decision to call off the full shutdown. Years and years of preparation (i.e. different service patterns and community meetings) gone to waste and dragging this project longer and longer. This is a sign the subway system is being used as a tool to advance political needs. Safety and improvements are not a priority anymore. I imagine the governor is sleepwalking on the stability of the tunnels itself and that he made this call because it was the easy way out in dealing with this project. If anyone is interested, you should read this: http://gothamist.com/2019/01/04/cuomo_angry_man_changes_l.php
  6. Buses need some huge security upgrades (locks on the front and back as well as the driver's window). I'm tired of reading buses getting stolen honestly. Has there been any serious measures to address this issue?
  7. Ralph Avenue on the has a closed entrance and partly closed mezzanine for Howard Avenue as well as Franklin Avenue (closed entrance for Classon Avenue) and a few other stops in Manhattan (Spring, 50th, 96th, 103rd, 116th, 155th, 163rd). I think these entrances were closed off as part of the TA's efforts to decrease crime on the subway system in the 80's and 90's.
  8. The NYPD tested out metal detectors at Penn Station yesterday. It's a pilot program for now, but I have concerns that this could be the future... https://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs/news/2018/12/11/nypd-debuts-new-subway-scanners
  9. That's crazy the overcrowding happened but not sadly surprised. City and state government needs to stop sleepwalking on transit and wake up to improve it. Once the 2020s hit, the subway is gonna need a major overhaul and some new subway lines. The network cannot stay as it is anymore. As a train rider myself, I have seen the effects of these changes so rapidly. The crowding on it during rush hours is really bad that sometimes I had to wait for the next train to show up just to get on. Hell, I've even been on trains that have had to by-pass stops because of heavy delays. On top that, the is also taking in passengers from the & on weekends because those are slow to show up.
  10. It was on Facebook and on top of that it was spotted on the 2nd Avenue Subway.
  11. I haven't seen one while I was out today. Nothing but R46s and R160s along with an R32.
  12. The MTA is likely trying out new tech on these LEDs on a basic concept (ex. date and time). I've seen these things before at Astoria Boulevard.
  13. The train would either not exist or run as a rush hour only line from East 180th Street to Flatbush Avenue or Utica Avenue.
  14. My guess is that they're planning something big for that space and that 'something' will be announced later this week.
