Apparently, the 4, 5 and 6 are the most frequently used subway services in North America.

A-OK: There have been no successful terrorist attacks in new York City since 9/11, perhaps in part due to the NSA's '[email protected] program

just back from Paris and London. I can say that the NY subway looks bad in comparison. I suppose NY'ers aren't the most aesthetically interested lot.

And as for the railway stations:

Gare du Nord/Lyon/St. Pancras/Paddington >>> GCT/Penn

Wake up NY, it's a disgrace. And as for the airports, don't get me started.

Do we know how the ridership will be affected by the SAS?

The problem with the NYC subway compared to the other older subways (I'm just back from Paris and London), is that the stations were designed to be extremely cramped and cluttered with various support structures and low cielings. London and Paris were designed with taller ceilings and lack pillars and low-hanging support structures. This gives the NYC subway a bad reputation for comfort and gives it a bad name in the minds of foreigners. It is probably the ugliest metro system in the world because it appears few people give a poop about the way it looks inside.

The modernization of the NY subway should take place as soon as possible. It should involve the removal of all metal/duct/support structures from the stations and completely modernize the interior fit outs with clean, bright modern designs. Each station should involve some air-cooling system. If not AC, then forced-air fans as the stations are like Hades in the summer and that is unacceptable for the financial capital of the developed world. The new SAS subway stations should be the model for all. The modernization should begin soon as the current stations are literally an embarrassment for the so called "greatest city" and are a black mark on its livability quotient. I don't want to hear excuses about political will/funding, etc. This is NYC, make it happen or watch other global cities eat your lunch as time goes along. The best talent are not going to put up with antique infrastructure for long given the competition abroad.

All fine and dandy; but tell that to the politicians and the MTA itself. Always complaining about not wanting to fund the agency or complaining about things being too expensive and there being a lack of funding.

If possible, focus on some heavily used station.
GCT/Penn was considered to be efficient and environmentally friendly. GCT was redeveloped and Penn was built for grand.

7 Train offers probably the city's best train-based scenic ride opportunity for construction watchers

We'll have to wait and see. It's not the first time they've announced a date, and it probably won't be the last. Unfortunately, the MTA has zero credibility on things like this. It's not time to celebrate just yet.
