Actually, the hoverboard would be a pretty cool way to get around these "open gangway" subway cars.

Maybe in 30 years or whenever these cars first appear in NYC the hoverboard will be allowed on NYCT property again.

More trains should be terminated in Lower Manhattan, to protect the businesses vital to the Greatest City in the World.

Maybe in 30 years we'll actually have real hoverboards like in Back to the Future II instead of those two-wheel scooters.

there is a mix of agency fears at doing something viewed by New Yorkers as ‘different’ even if it exists elsewhere

I think people should focus more on the real problem that New York subway need more capacity for growing number of passengers.

I was scared to take the subway around New York when I visited a few years ago. Yet I found it to be clean, well set up, and a very simple way to get around. Sure beats the cost of a taxi. It is fast paced but the routes are clearly marked so it was easy enough to find out where I should get on and off at. I did plenty of exploring and it was easy to get any subway to take me back to the main location when I was ready instead of backtracking by foot to where I had started from each day.

Bronx Borough Prez Calls for New Rail Yard Development Near Lehman College

Quote:
THE BRONX — A rail yard by Lehman College could be the ideal site for mixed-income housing, new retail space and an expansion of the school's campus, according to a new report from the office of Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

Diaz announced in his 2015 State of the Borough address that his office would study the feasibility of building platforms over three Bronx rail yards operated by the MTA: 149th Street in Mott Haven, the (1) train yards that connect Riverdale and Kingsbridge, and the Concourse Yard next to Lehman College.

Although his office found that the 149th Street and (1) train yards were not ideal spots for construction at this time, the report stated that the Concourse Yard "likely represents the greatest potential for mixed-use development of any piece of public land in the borough."
The yard provides storage, maintenance and washing facilities for (B), (D) and (4) trains and is roughly bordered by Jerome Avenue, Paul Avenue, East 205th Street and East 198th Street.

...

“Developing a platform at the Concourse Yard is a creative way to continue the revitalization of our borough while bringing new amenities and resources to the Northwest Bronx,” Diaz said in a statement. “Smart planning for the future requires us to consider all options, including real estate that does not yet exist.”

...

“This is not only a great opportunity to help the neighborhood to continue to develop commercial space as well as affordable housing for all," Diaz said in a statement, "but this plan could allow one of the best colleges in our city, Lehman College, the opportunity for expansion it deserves."

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr's office has released a report calling for the development of Concourse Yards by Lehman College.

All right folks. Here's the thread you need for everything light rail (and it also includes discussions on the Roosevelt Island Tramway), which includes the upcoming Brooklyn-Queens Connector.

Mmmm...I'd say the IND is a good runner-up. And since this map is pre-Chrystie St Connector, so I'd be curious what this map would look like with today's service patterns. Although the Lexington Av IRT is indisputably the busiest of the system.
