That wasn't sarcasm. Sarcasm has to at least be somewhat on-point and have some connection to on-going topics.

Rockaway Park Shuttle () will be extended to Rockaway Blvd between 9 and 9 pm on weekends starting 2016.06.12 and lasting through at least 2016.09.04. This will allow riders of any train (regardless of whether it's to terminate at Lefferts or Far Rockaway) to switch to the .

This has not been done in recent years.

The end of those records has been quickly approaching for a while now. Tokyo, Hong Kong, Beijing, Seoul, Shanghai are growing totalinaristically fast, and seem to all be about to eclipse New York's most stations, most miles etc. records.

I believe NYC subway mileage is growing faster than that of Tokyo, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Actually, at this moment, yes. There are no currently active route expansions in Tokyo, and NYC has both the 7 extension and the 2nd Avenue line.

A Staten Island Railway R44 ready to be taken to Coney Island. Or perhaps arriving from Coney Island and being taken back to Clifton.

What would you do if you could redesign the complex network of subway alignments in Downtown NYC?

For example, to reduce the number of subway lines by half and add two more tracks to other lines. To combine 1 with 2/3. To combine J/Z with N/Q/R/W. Make it IND. Make it Midtown.

Objectives could be to restore Wall Street to its former glory or to transform FIDI to the next wealthy residential neighborhood.

What's your proposal?

I would re-open the Nassau Loop and tighten bonds with Brooklyn for starters.

Bring back streetcars for local circulation.

Full build-out of the 2nd Ave Subway with 4 tracks. Have two tracks go to Brooklyn for the Court St. Shuttle (sorry museum) and have the other two swing over to meet up with the E line at World Trade Center.

More importantly, I would see two different four-track commuter rail tunnels under the Hudson. One, coming from the Bergen Arches, would carry the Erie lines, the Susquehanna, and the NYC West Shore Line. The other would come up from Communipaw and carry Raritan Valley, NJCL, MOM, West Trenton, National Docks/River Line, Newark, and other Central/South Jersey lines. The Erie lines would continue to Long Island, with a branch going up through Westchester and curving around to Piermont. The CoNJ line would go north and take over the re-opened NYW&B.

Finally, I would have the High Line extended south to about the WTC, and run a semi-express service up through Spuyten Duyvil and around out the Putnam/Getty Square branch.

Is there anyway to improve train transfer in Downtown if they rebuild it or not?
