It's always been the (4) and (5) for me. I guess the <5> is cool too. The 7th Ave express made for a fun ride, but the Lexington Ave express was always my favorite.

It's a very close toss up btw the (2) and the (7). Honestly I could go either way. Both have elevated and subway lines. The (7) packs a lot of diversity into a relatively short line but the fact that it has no Brooklyn leg prevents it from being a clear winner.

The (7)/<7>. There is a lot of variety into the route and it completely resembles Queens. It's also a VERY interesting ride with the views from the elevated and the performance is very good!

It's the line that really shows how New York is a melting pot. You have a motley of races in a single car. Hence the term, International Express.

Hence my name, I'll have to give it to the (2) Its reliable - A one-seat ride from where I live in the North Bronx to Times Square (also good for pplz in Mount Vernon) and its where i've exprienced my first train ride on the Redbirds.

I'll have to go with the (4) seeing as I spent most of my life along the (4)...I'm also gonna start work on it for BVE for the second time also soon(first version got destroyed) but w/e...also for the 4 the headways are great and it's a quick ride from Woodlawn to Midtown/Lower Manhattan/Brooklyn. Also IMO one of the fastest or possibly the fastest express ride I've experienced when theres no construction and there are alot of green signals ahead.

I choose the good old (5). When I'm in Manhattan during non-peak hours I'll wait for a (5) to take to Simpson St. they're usually less crowded than the (4) or (6) and the ride is a little faster. But the (6) is a close second.

I will have to go with the (4) for its speed and less stops. I live by the (2) and from 241ST to 42ND ST is a drag sometimes.

Can't I vote for the 42nd Street Shuttle? I love the one-minute ride filled with tourists and businessmen.

I used to use the (1) line for many years. I used the uptown portion alot.

 

Same here, to/from 157th Street, the (1) is my favorite line, I have a cousing who lives in the 157-58th Street neighborhood around Broadway. A second favorite would have to be the (2), and even the (4) and (6) lines, especially with their R142A fleet, so I have a ton of favorite IRT routes behind the (1)
