Building a physical connector btw 63/lex and 59/lex


Recommended Posts

IMHO, the easiest and most simple way to solve the entire QB situation would be to build a 3-block connector btw the 63/Lex stop on the (F) and the (4/5/6/N/R/W) stop at 59/Lex. That way, everyone desireing travel to the East Side could stay on the (F) rather than pack on the (E) train.

 

Think this is a good idea?

are you serious? this was done already. my answer is why make a connector to a deep, deep station like 63rd/lex to a normal depth station like 59th/lex? also, all that underpinning for what? the risk of collapse while construction, the wasting of many millions of dollars just to walk the same 3 blocks underground? come on seriously; STOP BEING LAZY! Enough already with theses connections. unless absolutely necessary. manhattan has done fine without them so far. why fix if it ain't broken?

A connector passageway doesn't reduce the distance between the two stations at all -- and that's the primary issue here.

I've always heard that there is a connection, but it is an electrical room (probably built as part of the IRT, off of the tunnel somewhere, and the new 63rd St line abutted it and was given a door to it).
