Briarwood-Van Wyck Blvd station - new entrance opened 2014.12.08

New subway entrance for a station in Queens opened on Tuesday. The subway entrance was reconstructed so the Van Wyck Expressway could be widened in both the northbound and southbound directions at this location.

MTA Subway has any station with glass-type turnstiles such as Săo Paulo Subway ones?

In a city like New York, with such a massive Subway system, the turnstiles are simply there because they work. They're much better for crowd management. No people up your arse trying to get a free ride (something I've experienced on a few occasions in Glasgow). The Metrocard works. Easy to use, no unexpected malfunctions. It's a case of if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I couldn't image the logistical nightmare of replacing every single Subway turnstile in NYC!

A lot of the turnstiles are exposed to the elements too, and you usually don't see our UK style ticket barriers out in the open.

Plus, I miss the satisfaction of totally hammering the turnstile around. Great stress relief. It's something I miss from the Glasgow Subway, and something I genuinely enjoyed doing in New York!

MTA Seeking Federal Funds for $300M for L Line Improvements
December 12th, 2014



The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is seeking federal funds for approximately $300 million in infrastructure improvements for the L Line, which runs from Manhattan to the Canarsie neighborhood in Brooklyn. Those neighborhoods have seen the largest increases in population in New York City.

The L line first opened as a segment on June 30, 1924, on a track vestige from a former steam-powered railway built in the 1860s. Its final segment opened on May 30, 1931, and the entire two-track line spans 10.3 route miles between Eighth Avenue in Manhattan and Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway in Brooklyn.

More than 300,000 customers use the L Line on an average weekday, an increase of 98% since 1998. The number of weekday customers who enter through the Bedford Av station, the line's busiest, has increased by 250%. After New York City Transit installed Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) in 2007, a new signal system that increased NYC Transit’s ability to run more trains each hour, the line got a 27% increase in ridership

Yes that tends to happen in cities who actually had these things back in the 19th century. It tends to take a lot of time and money to redo everything whenever another city shows up late to the party with something newer and shinier.
