First Look: Second Avenue Subway Stations



by Alec Appelbaum
4/12/07

We reported earlier on today's groundbreaking for the Second Avenue Subway, and we told you that "stations on the line will have natural light and column-free corridors (and, according to renderings, odd shards of Daniel Libeskind–esque glass)." Here now, renderings of those stations. (There's a larger version here.) Libeskinn-esque, indeed.

Mass-transit building boom begins in Manhattan
21 May 2007
USA Today

New York, other metro areas seek to expand public transportation as old systems strain. About 100M more people will live in the USA by 2040; many will take subways and buses.

NEW YORK -- The quest for a subway to carry commuters along Manhattan's Second Avenue long has bordered on the quixotic, the project beset by more fits and starts than a bus lumbering through rush hour.

First proposed in 1920, the Second Avenue line near the East River was shelved by the stock market crash of 1929, by World War II in the 1940s, and then by the 1970s financial crisis that crippled New York City.

Now, there may be light at the end of the tunnel. Much of the funding is in place for at least the initial phase of construction, and ground was broken last month for the elusive subway line.

While it may bear the most history, the Second Avenue subway is only one piece of the most significant expansion of New York City's transportation network in more than 60 years.

The nation's largest public-transit system -- 7.5 million trips every weekday -- is undergoing an unprecedented building boom in anticipation of a population surge that is likely to add 1 million more residents to the city over the next two decades.

Several other metropolitan areas are following suit, adding buses, improving routes and laying miles of track to combat traffic congestion and prepare for the 100 million more people expected to live in the USA by 2040.

"Most of those people are going to settle in metro areas ... and that means public transit will have to be one of the things that enable people to settle there," says William Millar, president of the American Public Transportation Association. "There's an understanding (among) the public. They want to have choice in their travel, and they're willing to pay for it."

Concerns about high gasoline prices, congested roads and the growing number of aging drivers who eventually may need other ways to get around are compelling voters to approve ballot measures that create transportation plans and raise taxes to pay for such projects.

Voters stepping up

In November, 21 of 32 ballot measures for transit were approved by voters in 12 states, providing more than $40 billion for local projects, says Bridget Hennessey of the Center for Transportation Excellence, a Washington, D.C.-based clearinghouse that tracks such efforts.

"We're seeing it not just in cities, but even (in) some rural locations," Hennessey says of the proposals, "because they're looking at their population growth in the future and rising gas prices, and they know they need other options."

Some cities are building transportation networks for the first time, while others are ramping up systems that have been in place for decades:

*In Salt Lake County, Utah, where 1 million more people are projected to settle by 2030, transportation officials are planning or constructing seven additional light-rail routes and commuter- rail lines, pushing rail transit for the area to 134 miles from 19. Two routes are set to be completed next spring, the other five by 2015.

"It's a new direction," Chad Saley, spokesman for the Utah Transit Authority, says of efforts to improve public transit in a state that built its first light-rail system only eight years ago. In November, two counties approved ballot measures to raise sales taxes by a quarter of a cent to help fund some of the projects, which will cost more than $2.8 billion.

*Denver plans to add 119 miles of light and commuter rail to its current 35 miles of track, expanding a system that has more than 62,500 boardings on an average weekday. "While we're trying to accommodate growth that's already happened, we're also trying to look ahead," says Pauletta Tonilas, spokeswoman for the transportation expansion known as FasTracks. Construction in the first of six new corridors is scheduled to begin in 2008.

*A sales tax increase Seattle-area voters adopted in November will enable the bus system to increase service by 20% during the next decade, the largest increase in 20 years, says Kevin Desmond, general manager of King County Metro Transit.

Desmond says buses will run more frequently, bus stops will be improved and more hybrid diesel-electric buses will be added to the fleet. With "high gas prices and pretty terrible traffic conditions, more people are choosing the bus service," Desmond says. "It is good, and we need to make it better."

Projects abound in New York

In New York City, transportation projects that are planned or underway include extension of subway service to the far West Side of Manhattan, possibly hastening commercial and residential development in the area. Also on tap: a new Long Island Railroad terminal at Grand Central Station in Midtown and a transit center in Lower Manhattan that will make a labyrinth of subway entrances easier to navigate.

"I believe that the city and the region will not be able to achieve the growth as projected of 1 million people in the city and 3 (million) or 4 million in the region if we do not do these projects," says Elliot Sander, executive director of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

To also help accommodate the population surge and tens of thousands of projected new jobs, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the state of New Jersey have committed $3.5 billion toward constructing a new rail tunnel linking Manhattan and New Jersey.

Officials are seeking federal funds for the $7.5 billion tunnel, whose capacity would double the 140,000 passenger trips each weekday in the existing tunnel, says Kris Kolluri, commissioner of New Jersey's Department of Transportation.

The Second Avenue line will be the city's first major subway construction since the 1930s. Not having it "is like having this huge blockage in the heart of the region's center," Sander says.

Elevated train lines operated along Manhattan's East Side for decades, but the last one stopped running in 1955 in anticipation of the Second Avenue subway. Since then, subway service on the East Side has been limited to trains under Lexington Avenue, which have become the city's most crowded.

Many New Yorkers have doubted they would ever see a Second Avenue subway.

"We call it the most famous thing that's never been built in New York City," says Gene Russianoff, senior attorney for Straphangers Campaign, a local advocacy group for subway riders. "I go to community groups and there's a lot of skepticism (about whether) it's going to happen, and I keep telling people that this time they set the bar at a level where they can meet it."

Still, only $3 billion in federal and local funds has been secured of the $3.8 billion needed for the first phase of the project, scheduled to be completed in 2013.

The pace of the remaining three phases on the line, which will ultimately stretch for 8.5 miles, will depend on the ability to secure funding.

Sander is optimistic. "For a project of this nature to have that amount of funding when you're breaking ground," he says, "is the equivalent of rounding third base and heading home."

NYC transit says that some subway lines are swollen to capacity
26 June 2007

NEW YORK (AP) - Some of New York City's busiest subway lines are at capacity, with no more room on the tracks to add trains to alleviate swelling crowds of riders, officials said.

New York City Transit presented an analysis of data showing how often trains run late, how crowded they are and whether more trains could be added to ease the problems.

Howard H. Roberts Jr., the president of New York City Transit, told members of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's board that the assessment's findings are "scary."

"This is scary in the sense that right now, on a lot of these lines, we're several years and a big capital construction project away from being able to provide what I would consider adequate service," Roberts said on Monday. "We're constrained."

Heavily traversed numbered lines have little or no room to accommodate more riders, Roberts said.

The results could have implications for congestion pricing, which would charge people to drive into Manhattan to encourage them to use mass transit.

Roberts told the board that congestion pricing may mean that the MTA has to rely on more buses. "If all those cars don't come in, there will be more room for the buses," he said.

The problem of overcrowding on trains could be alleviated by the new Second Avenue subway and expansion of computerized signal systems, or even the extension of platforms at some stations to accommodate longer trains. But many of those solutions are years away from completion.

Downtown 6 isn't that bad actually but the Uptown 6 is horrible during rush hour. The 4/5 is the worst, although they do come pretty quickly.

NY can't offer adequate subway svc for yrs-official

NEW YORK, June 25 (Reuters) - Any relief for New York City straphangers, who now endure overcrowded and often delayed trains, is several years away, even if the money is found to improve them, the president of New York City Transit said on Monday.

"From our point of view, this is scary," Howard Roberts, who was appointed to run the subway arm of the state mass transit agency in April, told reporters.

"We're several years and a big capital project away from being able to provide what I call adequate service," he continued, releasing a chart that showed key north-south lines on Manhattan's west and east sides were way over capacity.

New York somehow lost the courage to build new subways back around World War Two, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says. He proposed charging weekday Manhattan drivers $8 a car during peak hours from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to help raise some of the billions of dollars needed for new links, but that plan stalled in the state legislature last week.

Bloomberg's plan also risks burdening the already stretched mass-transit system if the new anti-traffic fees succeed in encouraging drivers to take trains and buses.

That is why the city and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, an umbrella transit agency, are focused on adding express buses to handle the new customers.

New York City's new transit chief delivered his unvarnished warning just a few weeks before the MTA starts drafting a new budget. The nation's biggest mass transit agency, with around 8 million daily riders, not only must close billion-dollar shortfalls in future years, but still lacks $1 billion for its new Second Ave. Subway.

Work began on that line -- the first since 1936 -- in April, but its first leg, which will carry riders from 92nd St. on Manhattan's East Side south to 62nd St., only opens in 2013.

And speeding trips for the millions of riders who now rely on the east side's Lexington Ave. subway and the west side's 1,2 and 3 lines, could require costly and time-consuming fixes, such as lengthening stations so they can handle more trains at one time as well as improving signals and controls.

"If we were able to speed the system up, that's probably four to five years (away)," Roberts said. His engineers should finish a feasibility study by the end of June, he said, adding it was too early to say what those improvements might cost -- and how many stations could be lengthened at one time.

Unlike commuter railroads, subway riders cannot simply walk forward several cars if a station is too short, he said, if only because the stops simply are too brisk.

"There is a limit to how fast you can get, how many cars you can put in a tunnel ... how many cars can get through a tunnel in an hour," he said.

The Lexington and the 1,2,3 lines are some of the city's busiest lines, carrying riders from the Bronx south through Manhattan and into Brooklyn. They now are so over-stretched that even minor delays can ripple into lengthy waits.

Even the Second Ave subway will not be enough to fix the system-wide crowding, let alone handle the 1 million new residents expected to to New York by 2030, Roberts added.

Bloomberg, who recently left the Republican Party and changed his political status to independent, on Monday told reporters he was still hopeful that the legislature will enact his new traffic-busting fees.

As straphangers fret the MTA might raise its current $2 base subway and bus fare, he cited another gaping problem: "Nobody's planning new service up in Brooklyn and parts of the Bronx."

The Lexington line is so jammed that a fiscal monitor has proposed ripping out the seats to pack more people in, noted Gene Russianoff, a transit advocate with the Straphangers Campaign. "I was pretty outraged," he said, adding this would have been tough for riders with long interborough trips.

After two years, NYPD keeps up pace of subway bag searches
6 July 2007

NEW YORK (AP) - Two years after starting random searches of passengers' bags on America's biggest subway system, police still set up more than 300 checkpoints per week, a police spokesman said.

The inspections are conducted in each of the city's 468 subway stations at least 35 times a year, spokesman Paul Browne said. He said the searches are conducted for several hours at a stretch and at all times of day.

The police department won't give many details about the searches, including their locations, because "we don't want to telegraph that information to the enemy, to people who would kill New Yorkers," Browne said.

The inspections began as a response to the suicide bombings that killed 52 people on London's subway and bus system on July 7, 2005. Terrorism experts say the random approach helps deter potential attackers by keeping them guessing.

"When you have randomness, it is more effective than when you do it all the time," said Timothy P. Connors, the director of the Center for Policing Terrorism at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a conservative-leaning think tank. "If you have a predictable regimen, it can be exploited."

But the New York Civil Liberties Union challenged the inspections in court, saying they were an unprecedented intrusion on privacy and an ineffective, easily evaded tactic. A federal appeals court upheld the constitutionality of the inspections in August 2006, calling the terrorism threat "substantial and real" and the searches "reasonably effective."

An NYCLU lawyer continued to question the practice Thursday.

"We fully support subway security measures," said the lawyer, Christopher Dunn. But he said the searches cover so few subway stations at any given time that they "cannot be effective enough to justify suspicionless police searches of law-abiding New Yorkers."

Browne, the police spokesman, said the program "is what it is."

"We've never said it's every place, all the time," he said.

Report: Nearly two thirds of New York sunbway riders say they have been sexually harassed
26 July 2007

NEW YORK (AP) - A new report finds that 63 percent of New Yorkers said they had been sexually harassed in the city's subways.

The report, titled "Hidden in Plain Sight," also found that 96 percent of respondents who had been harassed said they did not report the incident -- indicating that such behavior is widely accepted, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer said Thursday.

"The credo of `what happens underground, stays underground' has got to be broken," said Stringer. "The harassment and assault of women in the subway system has been going on for decades."

The survey was compiled from responses from 1,790 subway riders in all five New York City boroughs. Stringer said the results were not scientific, but that the report provides "an invaluable snapshot of a problem that persists but is inherently difficult to quantify."

The New York Police Department responded that crime on the transit system is at a record low, and police have arrested 119 people this year for sexual abuse or lewdness on the subways. Jeremy Soffin, spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, said his agency's work with police has contributing to record numbers of subway riders.

Stringer's office partnered with 20 other groups in disseminating the survey via e-mail.

The report defined harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, flashing, groping, fondling and public masturbation. The vast majority of the victims were females, the study indicated.

Report: Safety rules ignored in deaths of NYC subway workers
2 August 2007

NEW YORK (AP) - The first detailed accounts of what led to the deaths of two subway workers in April show that basic safety guidelines were flouted and supervisors failed to alert train operators that workers were on the tracks.

The reports released Wednesday by New York City Transit called for a broad overhaul of safety practices and for discipline to be considered for the three supervisors whose actions contributed to the workers' deaths.

Howard H. Roberts Jr., the president of New York City Transit, told The New York Times in its Thursday editions that the agency was working with the Transport Workers Union to reduce chances of such accidents occurring again.

"There are major barriers, the primary one being cultural, that we have to figure out how to handle," he said. "In many cases people do not follow the rules and consider the rules in some cases not to be particularly pertinent to how they see themselves as getting the work done."

A board of inquiry made of transit officials and union representatives authored the reports on the workers' deaths.

Daniel Boggs, 41, was struck by a train near Columbus Circle on April 24, and Marvin Franklin was hit by a train at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station in downtown Brooklyn.

The report on Franklin's death said that "organizational culture was such that critical safety rules were not practiced in day-to-day operations."

It also detailed how a supervisor who was supposed to be acting as a flagman, watching for oncoming trains, left his post; and how, moments later, a train plowed through the station, striking Franklin and another worker, who was hurt but survived.

The supervisor who was supposed to be the flagman told the report's authors that he never left his post. Instead, he said, he tried warning the endangered workers that they were "on the wrong track." That testimony was contradicted by others who testified for the board of inquiry.

The report did not lay full blame on the supervisor. It also described how Franklin and the other worker broke safety rules.

The report on Boggs' death said he crossed over to an express track that he may have thought was closed to traffic -- as had been scheduled. But train controllers had kept it open temporarily because of a stalled train on another track.

Boggs' supervisor, the report said, failed to communicate with train controllers to warn them that the subway worker was on the express track when a downtown train roared down it.

Following the two accidents in April, New York City Transit suspended all track work and those who do maintenance in the subways were retrained on all elements of safety.

NYC Subway... Man I've been using it for most of my life and I have to say it's not so bad, but it's not so great either. Some stations are really nice and some are just... crappy.

I know what you mean, I also wish they can get some type of ventilation down there because in the summer that place is hot as hell.

How come? Is a train a couple or more tracks over from a worksite there permitted to proceed at speed ("plowed")? I don't remember the article relating track-speed rules.

I so agree with the harassment. A few months ago i was on the D train when suddenly some woman tugs my rear end. I mean, it would've so made my day if she weren't ugly. Never been the same ever since...
