I think new subway lines should be built in Queens and Williamsburg after SAS.

Utica is next on the docket, and I really hope the city build is as an extension of the Fulton Street line.

Is there any plan for 75-foot subway car in the future?

Watching WNYC’s “Live Subway Agony Index” as the downtown 6X goes into meltdown is kind of awesome. So many UGGGHHHs.

If you’ve never seen this before, it’s a service that pulls real-time MTA data for the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 6x and converts it into emoji that encapsulates the current feelings of passengers at that station. Simple but effective!

Seamless Interchange

e.g. one seat ride to NY PRR Station (through train)

LIRR <-> IRT

I think he's highlighting the inclusion of the 7 extension in Gateway...didn't know that was still planned.

The NYC subway system operates 24/7/365..let's see some third world country do that. How many other metros in this world can make that statement?

..and I never stated it was perfect....nope... The NYC subway system just runs and runs and runs 24/7/365.

Apparently Sweden is a 3rd World country, so that's not necessarily a bad thing

Just a bit slower than its falling apart. It's like saying I make a payment on my card every month but a payment less than the fraction of how much the balance is divided by how many months before interest kicks in if it's not paid off by that point. I'm always paying for it (in time units of months) but still slipping farther behind each month. The only major wholesale upgrades are the east and west side access, bit that's totally new ground, not improvements to the existing. Of course that would be a good thing if the rest was in good shape and there was nothing else to do. But adding more when the rest is deteriorating is like dumping more burden on a strained caretaker and saying the extra "practice" and experience will make them more skilled at it. It's like spreading out a thin ration wider and saying, "there now more people are fed," but everyone is eating less. Politicians already play roullette with this stuff with only limited resources. There's only so much water you can add before it's not soap anymore.

Merry Christmas New York City Subway we love more than we let on but we'll have world peace long before you get New Yorkers to not complain.

Unlikely. All of the, supposed "Third World" countries that have built metros, have modern systems. NYC does not. It has a heritage system.

That doesn't make it "Third World," it makes it old.

This, along with "Crumbling Infrastructure" is one of those cute platitudes that someone, somewhere uttered, and everyone else felt they just had to repeat.

Ultimately, though, it's hollow, since all the biases inherent in the phrase kind of render it meaningless.

So, I'll just assume you mean it's old, dirty, unreliable.

Subway systems in developing countries are far better than NYC and many other subways in developed countries because they are new.

New Yorkers are surprisingly tolerant despite often being perceived as rude and impatient by the rest of the nation.

Subway is the lifeblood of the city, as some people might consider.
