    There is a pocket track on the express tracks between Canal and Chambers they can use to turn the if needed.

    Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

    That is something we can forget. We know his father's legacy and he wants to separate himself from his father.
  3. Like I said before, will some group now go to court to try to block this and force the back to the original plan? I still some doing that if for no other reason than to force Cuomo to admit under oath the real reasons why he's doing this.

    Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

    This to me says Cuomo fears a full shutdown as planned derails his Presidential campaign as either he knows he'll lose votes in NY, NJ, CT and PA because of it OR his donors would not fund such a campaign unless he did this.

    Full 14th St Shutdown Cancelled

    Likely doesn't matter to Cuomo, especially if his donors ordered him to do this. It more likely will take some groups taking Cuomo and the to court to force the to return to the original plan. Then, and only then might we get the real truth.

    Or better yet, waiting out Cuomo in the hopes he is impeached or forced out or is NOT re-elected in 2022.

    Which is why I would not be surprised if some group who can prove this now files a lawsuit to force the to return to the original plan, overriding Cuomo's orders and potentially derailing any Presidential aspirations Cuomo seems to have.

    Full 14th St Shutdown Cancelled

    You think some group concerned about how the new plan could have unintended consequences will go to court to try to force the to go back to the original plan, overriding Cuomo's orders? I can see some group doing such at least to force Cuomo to admit he ordered this: 1. For his ego 2. His fear an shutdown would derail any bid for President in 2020. 3. His donors ordered him to do it, citing fear of massive traffic problems in Manhattan.

    I would do that IF it allowed for the station to become a 600' station as part of a bigger project that would lengthen ALL the Nassau line stations in Manhattan to 600 feet.

    Yeah, that was me: Guilty as charged!!😄 I suspect we will soon be hearing Cuomo is running for President. And if that does indeed happen, I suspect we also will find out at some point Cuomo had fears that if the was still shut down when the New York primary happened, he'd lose just enough votes in NYC to cost him his home state with the same possible in New Jersey, Connecticut to a lesser extent and also to a lesser extent Pennsylvania (while small, it's sometimes the smallest thing that proves to be the difference). Also still think his donors demanded it be done because of fears their employees would be dealing with bloated commutes, especially those who drive and can't or refuse to use public transit because of ripple effects of other traffic from other areas causing work backups.

    Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

    If anyone told him, it would likely IMO have been a donor threatening not to fund a Presidential campaign in 2020. Otherwise, I think this is all about Cuomo not wanting a full-bore shutdown happening in the middle of the 2020 Presidential race as what would be happening otherwise, with HIS likely thinking it would cost HIM votes in New York and to a lesser extent New Jersey and Connecticut and an even lesser extent Pennsylvania, the four states to some degree this does matter if at all.
  12. Interesting. Why would it affect the and and NOT the or that actually stop in a station between the two IRT stations?

    Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

    Sounds like Ferrer doesn't want to PO Cuomo, knowing he'd likely at least get the blame if the original plan went through and in Cuomo's mind it cost HIM any chance of running for President in 2020 (not that Cuomo has any realistic chance of actually being the Democratic Nominee).
  14. Hopefully, this will go through. Something is needed to be done to cut down on traffic in Midtown.
