How will the Q train be rerouted to the Second Avenue line? I understand it will use the unused track from the 57th Street station to the 63rd Street line with a stop at the Lexington Avenue station, But how will it continue to the 2nd Ave. line? Will new track be built or is it going to share the track with the F train on the 63rd Street line?

A bit more digging on www.nycsubway.org would have given you this

The curve northwards to get under 2nd Ave has to begin at Lex, or it would be slow. Joining the F would be very brief indeed, and more costly.

Thanks, I saw that track diagram, but I wasn't sure if it were still valid, because the Wikipedia article says no track connection to the Chrystie Street Connection is planned (I presume that's the connection at Grand Station on the diagram).

According to Wikipedia, there is supposed to be a diamond crossover south of 96th St/2nd Ave station, which is not reflected on this map:

It would be interesting to see a diagram of how SAS and ESA all overlap around there on 63rd Street between Lexington and Second avenues.

Check the local NYC forums. A lot of more local news and in depth knowledge of the region is available there. (nyctransitforum.com)

Keep in mind this map is EXTREMELY outdated. The current track plan overall is much more simple than this, as it would be cheaper to construct.

Try this link I provided eairler for photos and locations of abandoned stations;

Abandoned NYC Subway Stations

I was not aware of any abandoned subway lines. But there were many that were planned but never constructed.

Great map just roll your cursor over the map to get the information.

Does anyone have a guess as to what the implications are for TODs with the MTA's existing stations? Specifically, if allowing them to sell air rights for developments over stations would be significant? (i.e. are there enough stations in a position to exchange those air rights?).

Is this at Queensboro Plaza?

Bergen is actually Norse. Not sure how related Norse is to German, but considering they're in the same geographical region in Europe, it wouldn't be too surprising.

AFAIK it's a germanic language, one of the main western language families.

It's Dutch, like many other toponyms in and around NYC.
