Of course if you count the miles of lines, tracks and number of stations the system was slightly larger in 1947 than it is today. NYC, which would like to think of itself as a world class city, bucking the trends everywhere else, has a shrinking heavy rail transit system. Go figure!

essentially every single north american city lost trackage between 1950 and 1970, most of them dropped rail transport altogether..

Good things come to those who wait! It feels like they started construction on this project when the dinosaurs were still around. Doesn't matter anymore: Lower Manhattan finally has a fantastic transfer station with state of the art amenities. Thanks, dimlys1994, for posting the pictures.

One thing that struck me (see the pictures posted above) is that there seem to be separate entrances for the R train and all other lines. It confirms what someone told me a couple of weeks ago when I asked about potential changes to the subway map in one of the NY subway threads. I understand the reasoning for disallowing a paid transfer so that the tunnel can be used by non-passengers to avoid crossing streets but the connectivity at Fulton Center definitely suffers from this decision. Unfortunately, the way subway rides are paid for in New York (swipe when you enter the system, exit without swiping again) doesn't allow for a solution that I have seen in Washington, DC (Farragut North and West stations) and Barcelona (Diagonal and Provenca stations): The payment card recognizes where you exit the system and allows for reentering without paying again at a station nearby.

Actually, all thanks for Mr Kabak - I love his article and photos

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

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.
You don't have to believe me, but I'm right. Come to NYC and see for yourself. That was always the plan (well, not from the very beginning, but the plan changed back in 2008 or so for the connection to the R to be outside fare control).

The reason the R is on the signage at the Fulton Center building is because when you enter the headhouse you can either pass through the fare gates to the 2/3/4/5/A/C/J/Z or walk down the new corridor under Dey St to the R at Cortlandt St (and eventually to the PATH, 1 and E that way as well), where you don't have to pass through fare gates until you get to the end of the corridor. The Dey St corridor itself is outside of fare control, and there is no way to transfer between the 2/3/4/5/A/C/J/Z and R without paying another fare.

Who knows what their fluffy "seamless transfer" language is supposed to mean.

I actually just admitted in #2424 that you were right.

I went to check it out today and I was very impressed, even better in real life than the pics. It was really awesome because from the hub itself you can actually SEE the various platforms and trains (namely the 4 and 5). It gave a very great feeling of openness and seamlessness and at the same time modern and definitely feels futuristic with the gigantic LCD screens! Wonder when the retail will move in? This whole area is gonna be breathtaking in a year or two when everything's done.
