Train service on the B and Q trains in Brooklyn is temporarily suspended because a stray cat wandered onto the track.

There will always be people who don't care about their own life, no matter how many DANGER signs they'll see in the stations.

New York subway extension ’90% complete’

A $2.4 billion extension to one of New York’s busiest subway lines is now 90 per cent complete – six years since construction first started.

The city’s transport authority, MTA, believes that the 7 Line Extension, which includes a new station at 34th/11th Avenue, will accelerate development on the west side of Manhattan.

Work began on the two-kilometre twin-bored tunnels in 2007.

The new subway section will extend the IRT Flushing Line from Times Square out towards the site of the proposed Hudson Yards development.

I guess, it is really expensive to build metro in NY and MTA really has problems with money, so that is why it is so slow( but it is only my guess, I may be mistaken),

Manhattan is built on more or less solid rock. Hence the massive buildings. Solid rock is not that easy to tunnel through. But yes would have thought 6 years was a bit too long though.

I know, this article is rather old an maybe it was posted here before, but guys, how do you think? I think that they should install this doors even if they cost 1 billion$. Many of the modern metro systems started to install such doors( even Lonond's old system has them). So, i think it ist time for NY to make subway a bit safer...

M.T.A. Cites $1 Billion Cost to Install Gates on Subway Platforms

Probably more worthwhile to be erecting kerbside barriers than platform-edge ones
