    Enhanced Station Initiative

    Passed by 174-175 Streets earlier and I have to say, it's looking nice...! From what I can see most of the tiles look clean and/or new.

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    I'm all for elevator replacement, but, an entire year!? There must be some serious work going on there.

    Second Avenue Subway Discussion

    Yeah, why didn't the just tunnel bore the whole thing all at one time, that's like the easiest and quickest part of the whole process!?

    Yep. Pay now, save later; save now, pay later. They need to abide by this, it would really help them.
  5. I'm in agreement with this. Getting trains in and out of stations will speed up service and keep trains on time. No more holding trains for connections, this is not the Long Island Railroad.

    November 25th along 8 Avenue

    Nice shots!

    The 8th Avenue stations are looking better as the weeks go by. I see work being done by workers during the weekends. I'm not even asking for new tiles during the enhancement. A simple cleaning would suffice.

    The picks from the season

    Nice shots! I'm just now noticing that the 179s have flatter roofs than the 160s.

    86th Street, CPW-Manhattan, NY Subway Station Tour

    Sad... The Fourth Avenue redos look six months worthy, 72 and 86 do not. At least clean the tiles and grout! 😕 😑

    OK, so, now that you mention the tiles not being redone, what justifies these stations being closed for so long? It doesn't look like much was done. But, I can say that I remember the walls being stripped as I was passing by on the lower level during reconstruction, because this station didn't get the blue walls that most ESI's get, so why does it look so bad...? lol

    From the looks of it, the latest ESI's are not nearly as nice as the originals; they seem half-done.

    R179 Discussion Thread

    Announcements are down the drain because PA checks are not being done anymore--on the new techs, at least. I can count on one hand how many times one's done in about a week's worth of riding, and most of the time, it's none.

    M-9 Discussion

    I saw a six-car M9 roll by my window about an hour and a half ago, going east towards Locust Manor. I just happened to look up since it sounded pretty much like an M7.

    Fare-beaters are going to fare-beat no matter what measure we take. Might as well have an aesthetically pleasing station for everyone else.

    De Blasio wants streetcar line on Brooklyn-Queens waterfront

    If I can bypass Manhattan coming from Queens, via subway, it works for me. Just as long as there are connections to other lines, it'll save time. I travel from Jamaica to Fordham via the subway and that is way faster than the bus will get me there. Some things are out of the question for some if the travel is too long, make the Bronx more accessible from Queens and things become open for consideration.
