  1. I must've missed it several times because I don't see where in the above slides this is mentioned. Would you like to point it out?
  2. This project will take 36 months to complete. How will the be able to handle the crowds as it will serve as the sole 42nd Street crosstown service?
  3. Yes - Upon closer look I could see where the stickers were added.
  4. I tried the link but its not working 😞
  5. You're right. If you look extremely closely, I can see where there transfer sticker is placed over the original transfers.
  6. As a Soundview resident I am definitely happy to see that the Bx6 SBS is being proposed to be extended down Story Avenue. Bx5 service is terrible mostly due to the traffic jam on Bruckner Blvd & Bronx River Avenue. To make matters worst, the moving company Roadway stores their trucks on a lot on Bronx River Avenue & Story Avenue, and their AM operations often block ALL traffic going south and north on Bronx River Avenue. And as if that is NOT enough, when the Bruckner Expwy is jammed, many drivers cut through Story Avenue which creates even more traffic. I've seen traffic from Bronx River Av & Bruckner Blvd be backed up all the way to Boynton Avenue & Story Avenue. Also - there are two new affordable housing buildings that are slated to open this summer along Story Avenue and two more that are being planned on Story Avenue between Boynton and Morrison Avs. The current Bx5 cannot handle the crowds as it is now, imagine when the new buildings open and the other two are built. All of this to say that Story Avenue will definitely benefit from the additional Bx6 SBS service, but DOT MUST figure something out with Bx River Av & Bruckner Blvd in order for this to work. If there were money somewhere, they should look at a flyover bridge over the Bronx River connecting Lafayette Avenues or connecting Story Avenue to Garrison Avenue avoiding Bruckner Blvd all together.
  7. Are you sure this strip map is from 2002. Back in 2002, the Barclays Center was not yet built. That opened in 2012. And the train was a service that was still in operation. train service was discontinued in 2005.
  8. The amount of people on the subways who are homeless and also experiencing mental health problems is becoming unbearable. I've noticed that I can't go from point A to B on the train without having the 'pleasure' of encountering one of these people. It is truly unfortunate.
  9. Caught the 10-Car R179 A train at 168 Street bound for 207 St. Maybe they corrected whatever issues were happening?
  10. Random - How come the interior door lights (I don't know what the technical term for it is) on the R179 are so obnoxiously big compared to what they usually look like? The only other car that also has obnoxiously big interior door lights are the R46.
  11. Any updates on the location of the 10-car R179?
  12. I wish they would have at least re-grout the walls to really give the station that sparkly new look. Other than that... looks really nice to me!
  13. I agree. Her announcements are clear, even though some people say that she sounds like she is yelling.
  14. Given the different voices were hear on the NTT of the NYC Subway, it's a given that some may find certain voices more pleasant than others. This is the breakdown of announcements by lines: - Diane Thompson - Jessica Ettinger-Gottesman - Kathleen Campion - Catherine Cowdery I'm not sure why I find that the announcements on the are different from the rest of those that are announced by Catherine Cowdery. Does anyone else pick up on that? Anyway, if it were up to me, I would have Jessica Ettinger-Gottesman be the ONLY voice for the entire subway system, while Charlie Pellet announces transfer points and 'Stand Clear Of ThE Closing Doors Please'. I think that Jessica's announcements are the most crisp and clear announcements. What do you all think? Who is your favorite voice? And... What is up with those R143, those announcements are played so low it is almost impossible to hear. Is that something that the C/O can adjust?
  15. You are absolutely correct. There is a timer just north of the southbound track. As you said, the train nearly comes to a complete stop right before it enters the station, and then crawls in. I remember a few years ago, those southbound trains would fly into 125 Street Station, while the and crawled in. I believe the and crawl in due to the switch to the middle express track just south of the station.
