  1. Unless Bloomberg is going to pay for the new station then there really shouldn't be any "considering". He needs to put his money where his mouth is.

     

    I support the (7) extension but there's a line on the East Side that's overdue and is needed than a second station.

     

    If they want they could build a station shell and then finish it when more money comes.

     

    I totally agree. If the (MTA) were to build another station, then taxpayers would most likely be paying for it. I wouldn't think an extra stop on the extension would really be worth the money.


  2. the (:)(Q) is running on express track after Newkirk because they installed a platform on Avenue J on the Coney Island Bound Express track.

     

    Yea, but it also said the (;) and (Q) will run local between Prospect Park and Kings Hwy, and I don't think there are any temproary platform at stops beyond Newkirk Avenue.


  3. I found a good link on the (MTA) website detailing the rehab project.

    Also, the (:( and (Q) train will start bypassing Avenue H and Avenue M on Sept. 28 but the trains will still run local. I do not know why they are telling people from Avenue M and Avenue H to go to Newkirk Avenue, people from Avenue M and transfer at Avenue J.

    Info for Sept. 28: http://tinyurl.com/yczxjvf


  4. I hope not. Those people should realize that if nothing is done, those stations could become a safety hazard.

     

    The Brighton Line stations are a little crummy and old, but I can assure you, they are not as worn down as the Sea Beach line, look at their stairs, platforms, or leaks. I don't see why (MTA) should waste their money on repairing stations like Newkirk and Avenue J, but if the (MTA) say they can pose a safety hazard, who's to stop them. But I bet people who rely on the line, aren't too happy.


  5. Any one watch the Rockies? Since July 1st, They been the hottest team in MLB.

     

    Yea, they've been playing excellent, with their great pitching and offense from Helton, and others. On June 1st, they were 15 1/2 game behind the Dodgers, and if they can overtake the Dodgers, then they will set major-league history.


  6. has anyone figured out why (;) trains will run all times cause I just checked the site and they have it stated for the 19th of September

     

    Like the others said, I think it means the (B) will run local all times from 5 AM-10 PM, meaning it will still run local even if it's Rush Hour or Midday.


  7. Ichiro bypassed Albert Pujols too.

    What's funny to me is that FOX Sports had a poll if there would be another poster boy like Babe Ruth. Everybody said no which was truely amazing. We already have a few of these guys out here that don't use any steroids at all and are underrated such as Albert Pujols and Ichiro. You don't see any commercials with Albert, Ichiro, and even Cano who is hitting second best of the Yankees.

     

    That is mostly because they are not born in U.S. or not fluent in English, like Hudson said. Look at Derek Jeter, the New Jersey native was born in the U.S., and look at how many commercials he has been in, like for Ford, he has a marketing line for Derek Jeter Turn 2 Gloves, and a whole line for SKLZ. Albert Pujols is great, but you can't consider him as an American product. You see Tiger Woods, Eli Manning, Chase Utley and a few others on your TV screen, all american born. Or that Guitar Hero ad with Kobe, A-Rod, Phelps, and Tony Hawk. Remember back in the 1990's, that video game about Ken Griffey, Jr. you even see Cal Ripken, Jr. star in some ads. The only time you really see players not born in the U.S. starring in a commercial, is for local ads for their own team, or the All-Star Game, like Albert Pujols did or the Subway commercial with CC and Johan Santana (born in Venezula). But there are still plenty of players who don't star in nationwide ads like Wright, Howard, Tex, Mauer, etc.
