Department of Subways - Proposals/Ideas in New York City Subway Posted December 31, 2019 3 minutes ago, bobtehpanda said: This ain't gonna be useful to anybody. People want connections to Manhattan, and they'll storm off the G the first chance they get. Also how would it be connected to Atlantic? And why cut it back from Church? That extension gave the G a kick in the pants when it came to ridership. Why wouldn’t expanded subway service in Queens be useful? I think Northern Blvd would make a good east-west corridor, even if it isn’t served by the , but my reasoning was that the ends at Court Square, it can stand to go a bit further. But you’re right, more people will be traveling to Manhattan than Brooklyn. Who is this supposed to serve? And there's no space on 53rd St for more trains. It’d connect LaGuardia with Manhattan and the subway system, wouldn’t that be a good thing? I mean you could extend the loud outdoor to LaGuardia, I was trying to avoid that. And as far as space, make more space. CBTC, deinterlining, or shift something around some other way. Or send the (or the ) to LaGuardia instead of down Queens Boulevard. Why so far east? Who's it gonna serve, the one CVS and that Pizza Hut they're demolishing? Bring it to Springfield and call it a day. We need expansion to help reduce the reliance on cars. Once upon a time we had lines running out over farmland, it helped induce demand, Queens by itself is the 4th most populated city in the U.S., Brooklyn is the 3rd, the demand for expansion into subway deserts (most of Queens) is there. I mean, financially, Springfield Blvd would obviously make more sense, but I don’t see a Little Neck Pkwy extension being entirely useless. Quite a few lines also approach city limits. Who would this benefit? And why also do this in addition to your Q44 line? Even with construction costs under control, we could afford one or the other and not both, and an AirTrain extension is weaker given that Willets Point is not a high-demand destination and you'd be running it through Corona Park, which has zero residents and jobs. In a perfect world we could have both, I think AirTrain LGA to Willets Point is quite dumb and little more than a pet project for Cuomo, however a connection to Jamaica would open it up to a much much larger passenger base, making the project (which is being built) more worthwhile. People traveling to LGA via the AirTrain from Jamaica and people traveling to LGA via the NorthernBlvd/LGA subway would mainly be coming from different directions. LGA is just too centrally located within NYC to not have a subway connection, it’s just asinine that this isn’t a thing already in existence.
