I predict 2020. Things tend to take 4 years longer when it comes to the MTA.

Planned 7 train extension faces delays: MTA
By Rebecca Harshbarger
January 27, 2014 | 5:49am

The planned extension of the No. 7 train to the far west side of Manhattan is facing delays, the MTA says.

The final date for the $2.4 billion project — paid for by the city and extending the line to 34th Street and 11th Avenue — is being moved from June to late summer or early fall, officials said.

Former Mayor Bloomberg championed the project. He took a trip on the yet-unopened line shortly before leaving office.

The tracks have been laid, but problems installing the station’s high-rise and incline elevators are pushing back the project date, officials said.

A presentation will be made to the MTA Board on the mega-project Monday.
Also discussed will be the findings of a new study looking at the impact of bus-service cuts to the Bronx’s Co-Op City in 2010.

The No. 7 line extension is not the only major MTA project not making deadline. Officials recently said the massive project to bring the LIRR to Grand Central is also behind schedule.

P.s. My 2000 post!!!

I was just New York and I was super impressed with the subway. There are 24 lines, and most stations are served 24 hours a day, seven days a week. New York can do this because most lines have 4 tracks, 2 for local and 2 for express trains; some lines have 3 tracks, with the centre being reversed for peak direction express trains.

The stations and trains are relatively clean - free of any graffiti and no liter (there was some on tracks I noticed). Announcement are made for every train arriving giving it's destination and designation. eg "the next train arriving on track 1 is a World Trade Centre "E" local service".

Diversions are handled well. When I was there, I had the following: "The next train on Track 1 is a World Trade Centre "E" local service. Due to an obstruction on the local tracks, all E trains will be running on the express tracks between 50st and Canal street. Passengers for local stations transfer to a northbound "E" or "C" local service." The redundancy built into the track network allows New York subways to be rerouted and continue to operate when a train fails or other obstruction. In most other cities, the trains would have been halted until the obstruction was cleared.

Platforms are well marked with the service stopping there and any alterations on weekends or at night time, when another service might service that station.

Overnight, trains run every 20 minutes. There are some express trains overnight too. And many lines combine and provide more frequent service.

I rode the subway a lot and felt safe at all times. They are not the most interesting stations architecturally, but they are functional and it is fun to watch the express trains going through the station on the inner express tracks, while waiting for a local train.

On the street, you can often hear the subway trains through the grates - the trains are just below the street.

It's easy to get to the airports too:
JFK has a dedicated AirTrain (SkyTrain technology) that connects the terminals to Jamaica or Howard Beach Stations. To get to Manhattan you can do any one of the following:
1. AirTrain to Jamaica, then "E" express to Manhattan - fastest way to Times Square - 30 minutes on the subway, plus the AirTrain. However, E express is all underground.
2. Air Train to Jamaica then Long island Railroad to Penn Station - about the same time as the E subway, and costs more. Best if travelling through to New Jersey as you can get PATH or New Jersey Transit trains at Penn.
3. AirTRain to Howard Beach the the A Express to Manhattan - fastest way to downtown Manhattan, but takes 20 minutes longer than the E to reach Times Square. A express is on the surface for part of the route.

Newark - New Jersey Transit from Penn Station has trains running to the airport every 15 minutes weekdays, 2 an hour on Sunday. Can also use PATH trains to New Jersey Penn, then change to New Jersey Transit for one stop run to the airport.

Why it takes so long and costs so much money to build just 3 stations?

Most of the construction companies are controlled by Sicilian mafia, that's why.

Yes, the 467 NYC subway on 469 are open 24/7 and also the 21 Staten Island Railroad stations are open 24/7 and don't forget that the Path, LIRR, MTA buses and SI ferry have a 24/7 service !!!

Definitely ironic being that some stations (like Chambers St BMT are trash) and newer South Ferry still sits is despair (although it will get repaired).

But the newer South Ferry WON'T be ready by that time. It will be interesting to see new Cortlandt and old South Ferry in operation for a while.
