  1. The answer is no. There was never any connection or daylight between the subway tunnel and the trolley terminal. In addition I believe that by the time the subway got near 2nd Ave., it was well below the level of the trolley terminal.
  2. Do you know how narrow the service road is? One driving lane plus one parking lane. Hudson Rail Link has teeny tiny buses, not suitable for BRT. Big buses would have a real problem on the narrow, curvy, steep streets. I know, I live a few blocks away.
  3. Do you have any idea how narrow the HH Parkway ROW is? No way could any tracks fit there, even if elevated. Also, the route on your map to and from Riverdale MNRR station goes through what's called the "estate area." No way those residents would want rail on their streets. And the grades uphill from MNRR would also be impossible.
  4. You can get on at any station with a ticket for the same zone. Plus, the conductor usually doesn't get to you until a few stops have gone by anyway.
  5. That was decided between the 2 states about 250 years ago.
  6. Not that easy. One is a pretty high el, the other underground. It would work if they were on top of each other, but they are at least 4 blocks apart. Some heavy engineering for the ramps, stairs, escalators, elevators, and underground passageways that would be needed.
  7. So, we've had countdown clocks for several years now. Is there any evidence of crime going up in the intervals between train arrivals?
  8. According to LIRRToday, MTA has put off eliminating cash for LIRR tickets until OMNY is fully rolled out. https://www.thelirrtoday.com/2019/12/lirr-tables-plan-for-onboard-cash-ban.html
  9. Yes, many Howard Beach residents paid the extra fare to use the as their private subway to midtown.
