As with the part 1 i agree with all of this. Co-op city DESPERATELY needs subway connection, and the (L) to hoboken would DRASTICALLY improve peak travel options and relieve congestion on the ferries, NJT and PATH. You could pay for most of these expansions easily with the added revenue they will bring in.

The thing about this is:

 

1) They are finally working on the (N)(T) Second Avenue Lines, and with the Triboro Line (K)(M) already having a right of way within the next 20 years, that could be a distinct reality. The other stuff obviously, a wish list.

 

2) The (N) instead of the (Q) going to Harlem in my scheme would give the Broadway Line a 24 hour Local Train, connect it with the Brighton Line, they would get into Manhattan quicker using the (W) Express. The (N) would run express in Manhattan at all times. The (R) would be more a Long Island / Queens to Manhattan. Bay Ridge passengers would be served by the (D)(J) trains and could connect to the (Q) Local or (N)(W) Express.

 

If they intertwine the 2nd Avenue and Triboro projects (since the Triboro would be running to Yankee Stadium) and have track connections to the Concourse line, then (B)(D) trains could also run via 2nd Avenue and either 6th Avenue or Broadway to get to Brooklyn.

Well, to me I would extend the (V) to the same final Bus stop as the Q46: Lake Success. Then extend the (R) to 179 St. Getting the (F) to extend to Francis Lewis Blvd or Queens Village. Then put the (J) to Bay Ridge Station and then extend the (R) again to Stillwell Av.

If they intertwine the 2nd Avenue and Triboro projects (since the Triboro would be running to Yankee Stadium) and have track connections to the Concourse line, then (:P(D) trains could also run via 2nd Avenue and either 6th Avenue or Broadway to get to Brooklyn.

 

 

i totally disagree with this cause the (Q) is a small route and they want to extend and relieve pressure on the Lexington line. but then Sea Beach won't be covered unless by the (W). the (J) should stay and the (R) should be shortened.

 

but i agree with the triboro. then the train will start from bay Ridge , to flatbush, to queens , or bronx. but it might not become a reality if frieght trains keep on running on those lines.

and second you mistakenly put (N) as the future 2nd avenue subway supporter. it is the (Q)

Then the QBx1 route might be scrapped, if they extended the (6) train there since they could just take the (6) and transfer for the Q44 at Parkchester...

or you can just curve the pelham bay station heading northward to extend the tracks to co-op city. well then it would look good in co-op city. the lines of buses looks better.

Every thing the same except (T)(H)(E)(T) was completed and the (A) train was only from 207 st to green acres mall via lefferts. With the (C) going to far rockaway and the (E) going to rockaway park along with the (S).

The idea of the (L) to Hoboken is nice, but I see it being stopped fast by PANYNJ especially.

 

With another idea you have, what would serve Bay Ridge? West End?
