The (6) used to stop at Worth St. They got rid of it when the platforms were extended. It was between Brooklyn Bridge and Canal St.

A few years back, I overheard this lady asking another woman about getting home from Astoria. The woman replied that she [the one asking] had to take the (R)®. Yes, the Double one.

[sARCASM]Yes, that is correct. Take the 70(RR) to Astoria. Also, you can try the 70(EE), (NX), and the 70(CC).[/sARCASM]

 

That lady was sure outdated.:eek:

All of the Nevins St info concerning the (2) and (5) is incorrect. There are 2 levels at the station but the lower level was never used for any type of service. It was built and abandoned before the IRT had any numbered lines. Sounds like " Nat" has been pulling your leg. Or hitting the pipe.

Or his/her memory is as distorted as her spelling is. I remember when I was a kid (age 4~5) and I was being driven over the Williamsburg Bridge, I went home and drew a bridge with tracks varying in elevation along the bridge like a sine wave; the tracks do vary in elevation relative to the road, but not enough to make a dozen camel humps.

About 10 years ago I rode the (2) train out to Flatbush Avenue and looked through the Railfan Window�. Just as you're leaving the southbound Hoyt Street-Fulton Mall station, the tunnel widens a bit and you see a trackway that ramps down to another level. This leads down to the Nevins Street Lower Level. It's for a line that was never built. The station was redesigned after construction was already well underway ca. 1905-1908 and the platform was never-used. I only saw the lower level on the southbound side. Never on the Manhattan bound side.

 

When the Dual Contracts of 1913 were being drawn up, the City received many proposals from the Interborough and the B.R.T. One of the proposals, if memory serves me correctly, was to re-build the Third Ave. Elevated for heavier steel subway cars and to connect them to the I.R.T.'s Brooklyn subway via the north side tracks of the Manhattan Bridge, go a short distance on Flatbush Ave., and connect to the Nevins Street station. The proposal was fought by the B.R.T. because it would have altered their track plans for DeKalb Ave. station, not to mention the loss of two tracks on the north side of the Manhattan Bridge. There is a reference to this in Cunningham and DeHarts book, "RAPID TRANSIT IN BROOKLYN". The City sided with the B.R.T. and the I.R.T. proposal was discarded. I don't know if this had anything to do with the unused Lafayette Ave. connection tunnel, which was filled in by later subway construction. Maybe someone has some info on that Lafayette Ave connection.
