You’ll never see a switch placed so in a subway. If this ever gets converted for subway use, I suppose that switch is going to get moved.

Technically, it’s a railroad, right? But I suppose they could also fence off that area to make it technically not within the platform limits (like 36 Street on the 4 Avenue Line). It’s really poor design to have switches approach too close to platform limits.

I think that section of the platform might be needed for the Newark service in the future, since it is going to be lengthened to 10 cars. The Hoboken service will presumably remain at 7 cars, and therefore will not need to use that part of the platform.
