Subways and elavateds would have been built a couple decades earlier, had it not been for boss tweed who was backed by the horse drawn streetcar drivers.

No way. 4 years for reconstructing a subway station? Well, i understand that it was strongly damaged( as well as its power systems etc.) but 4 years is a bit too much.
Well, at least, they were already testing protection systems in the beginning of october

http://www.ny1.com/content/news/2165...bway-stations/

And by the way, it seems, i've seen people going out of the station on this video( not workers)...

September 2014 ridership records

Daily figures were first recorded in 1985.

Quote:
Subway ridership has grown steadily in recent years, approaching levels last seen during the World War II era when the subway network included more elevated lines, many customers were counted twice as they transferred between different systems, and far fewer New Yorkers owned cars. The previous ridership record of 5,987,595 was set Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013. The five record-breaking dates in September were:

• Sept. 23, 2014 6,106,694
• Sept. 18, 2014 6,094,684
• Sept. 19, 2014 6,073,580
• Sept. 17, 2014 6,051,863
• Sept. 10, 2014 6,012,270

Coincedentally, I was actually on the Subway on this day (this time last year, can't believe it!)

Here's a video I took on the busiest day the New York subway has ever had - on the bridge between Manhattan and Brooklyn

Hmmm...was it that cramped in that subway car that you could only hold your phone vertically? Or is NYC gradually collapsing under its own weight, thus creating its own black holes?

Happy 110th Birthday to the NYC Subway System

For the first time in his life Father Knickerbocker went underground yesterday, went underground, he and his children, to the number of 150,000, amid the tooting of whistles and the firing of salutes, for a first ride in a subway which for years had been scoffed at as an impossibility. New York's dream of rapid transit became a reality at exactly 2.35:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, when the running of trains with passengers began.

With a silver controller Mayor McClellan started the first train, the official train, which bore John B. McDonald, the contractor who dug the subway; William Barclay Parsons, Chief Engineer of the Rapid Transit Commission, and most of the other men who made the Subway a possibility and a reality.

-The New York Times, October 27th, 1904

Here's To a Beautiful and Interesting History, and Here is to a Glorious and Magnificent Future for the Most interesting of Transit Systems in the world.

Fulton Center subway hub to open in November
Monday October 27, 2014



An MTA official announced Monday the $1.4 billion transit center — the Grand Central of downtown — will open on Nov. 10, making transfer between several subway lines easier, and also features stunning visuals and retail space

The MTA's gleaming $1.4 billion Fulton Center subway hub will open Nov. 10, a transit official announced Monday.

Billed as the Grand Central of downtown, the center is designed to simplify transfers among several subway lines and provide new transfer opportunities.

The glass-and-steel-entrance building at Fulton St. and Broadway features a 90-foot-wide skylight that allows sunlight to filter down to the two mezzanines below street level.

MTA officials previously said the Dey St. Concourse, a new underground passageway linking eight subway lines at the Fulton complex to the Cortland St. R-train station would not open until next year when certain Port Authority construction at the World Trade Center site is completed

Is the MTA going to come up with a new subway system map showing the enhanced transfer options at Fulton Center? The current map does show the possibility of transferring between the A,C, J,Z,2,3,4, and 5 trains but should highlight the significance of Fulton Center as the transfer station in lower Manhattan more clearly. The current map also doesn't include the soon-to-be-open link to the R train at Cortlandt St via the Dey Street passageway. As far as I know, it is also possible to reach the World Trade Center E station, the Champers St. A,C station, and the Park Place 2,3 station from Cortlandt St.

The connection to the R is outside fare control, so they will not show it on maps. Same once the connections to the E at WTC and 1 at Cortlandt St open (next year). Connections outside of fare control, such as between the A/C/E and 1/2/3 at 34th St-Penn Station, are not included on the MTA maps.

However, my understanding is that the transfers among the 1, R and E will be within fare control, so that connection will be included on subway maps once it is available.

I'm not saying you're wrong but if that's the case then I do not understand how MTA (on the project website) distinguishes between seamless transfer and improved access. Here's the quote: "Fulton Center will serve as an essential transportation and retail hub in Lower Manhattan, providing seamless transfer for approximately 300,000 passengers of the A,C, J,Z,2,3,4,5, and R lines with improved access to the E and 1 lines." Source: http://web.mta.info/capital/fulton_alt.html

Also, various pictures of Fulton Center's new signage show the R. See here:
http://tribecacitizen.com/wp-content...-on-Fulton.jpg
https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/14522620834/

I find it hard to believe that you can access all the trains depicted from the new building on Fulton and Broadway but not transfer between them within fare control.

I apologize if I'm completely on the wrong track here.
