Most scenic route?

Recommended Posts

The Brighton line. Can't get much better than that.

Brighton, farock (A), dyre and the (J). Even though most of the outdoor portion of the (J) line goes though inner city/ghetto areas its still senic IMO, that route has a nice gritty feel to it esp when the line was 100% R42.

I love the IRT Flushing line, not only for the view, but for the variety of people who enter and exit the train. I like the Brighton Line, the J/M run over Broadway and the Williamsburg Bridge and I really enjoy the Astoria Line as well.

-Certainly: The A from Rockaway Blvd to either part of the Rockaways

I'd say, the 4 from Yankee Stadium and onwards

Franklin Ave Shuttle

Canarsie Line (Broadway Jct. to Canarsie)

I love the Pelham Line of course...but I think an unsung hero is the (1). You usually don't hear people talking about it in terms of beauty, but it has some amazing views of the Harlem and Hudson Rivers.

The only thing I like about the Pelham line is the curve at Whitlock Avenue. Other than that, its boring and dull ride along the way. As for the (1), I haven't been on that stretch of track since 2006.

Well the only good views from the 1 could be seen from 207th to 225th, after that, I don't know.

Every one knows the (R) is most scenic especially between 59 St and Bay Ridge Ave. Lol:p My favorite is operating on the Flats between Howard Beach and Broad Channel. Most scenic end to end I would go with the (M) Met to Bay Pkwy

You can ride as many times as you want I'll even get you a R42 for the ride.:(

I thought you hated the R42s? ;)
